Boy, I guess this is the American dream. Stay at a luxury hotel, hang out at an indoor waterpark, and then go shopping at Arundel Mills which is within minutes of the this development, and catch a flick at either Muvico at the Mills (24 screens) or Lowes (14 screens).
This was a big story around here (I live relatively close to the airport) because the community wanted it opened to the public, and made threats to have the project stopped if it wasn't. But, since it's a private company project, there wasn't anything they could do.
A reporter from Fox 45 called me today after I emailed all the papers and tv stations about this slight against our community and will be interviewing me tomorrow about the story, was this issue ever covered in the news tv or papers when your community was fighting it before? I might need to give him names of others who are upset at the resorts pricing tactics so I will keep in touch...
Do you know how many filthy-rich or even moderately weathly people there are within approximately an hour's drive of this development? Thundred's of thousands of people.
You've got Howard County (Columbia), Montgomery County (Bethesda/Rockville), parts of Prince Georges County, large sections of Baltimore County (Towson, Timonium, Lutherville, for example), Anne Arundle County (Annapolis, Crofton), Harford County (Bel Air), Carroll County (growing way out of control with new housing and McMansions), not to mention an ever growing population of Baltimore City who have lots of money to burn.
Then you go out a little bit further, and you've got some insanely weathly people who live in the D.C. area, like Georgetown, and in Virginia in Tysons Corner and all along the Dulles toll road in the tech corridor.
I don't think they'll be hurting for business during late fall/winter/ and early spring.
I don't know what constantly makes people think that they are entitled to everything.
If this turns out to be a nice place, I might pay to stay there one night just to try it out (even though I'm about 20 minutes from there).
The locals are not their target group here. I think they are looking to give business people attending events in the area a reason to bring the family along for some fun.
I live like 5 minutes from where theis will be, and we'll probably spring for a weekend during our winter break from coasters.
Plus, there's nearby downtown Baltimore. Guests can catch the Light Rail by BWI into downtown Baltimore City. They can also head right down the BW Parkway to Arundel Mills, like Intamin Fan said. And yes, there are plenty of wealthy people nearby--Howard County is the wealthiest county in the state in terms of median household income, and I think that I read somewhere that Maryland is the second wealthiest state in terms of the same measurement.
