According to the story, the proposed park would be 1800 acres and would cost approximately 160 million dollars to build. The park is apparently supposed to be indoors and will feature roller coasters, other amusement rides, and a shopping complex. It is supposed to employ about 2000 workers year round. The proposed opening date of the park is in 2010.
I know that the validity of this story has been questioned in the past, but there is apparently some truth to it.
It will be interesting to see what happens from here on out. I have to admit that I'm hoping to see a successful park in the area in the future. I only live about 80 miles from the proposed site and it would be nice to be so close to a park. In addition, my parents own a cabin that is only about a 20 minute drive from the proposed site.
Obviously this is not a sure thing, but it is an interesting possibility.
