Pavilion developer's credibility and proposal questioned

Posted Friday, January 7, 2005 12:17 PM | Contributed by Jeff

Efforts to redevelop The Myrtle Beach Pavilion Amusement Park have hit roadblocks as city leaders and the Pavilion owner question the California developer picked to create the plan. Questions were raised Thursday by local leaders about the developer's financial status, and complaints surfaced that the project is not moving as quickly as expected.

I'm afraid they'll probably just find a more *credible* developer and go ahead...MAYBE the Pavilion gets another one-year lease on life, but I doubt this means the Pavilion will be "saved"....

It would be nice if they'd eventually just get bored with it. Stupidest mistake ever!

I also wish they would get bored with it and leave the Pavillion as it is. I have a feeling they are going to drag this out for another year or two, or maybe more.

Maybe they will realize that Myrtle Beach has enough "shops, restaurants, and attractions" already.

No, they want shops,restaurants, and attractions that will be open year round, cause they think people will flock to the beach in the winter. Trouble is ,IMHO, it isn't going to happen. Even here in SOCAL there is only a fraction of the traffic at the beaches during the winter. The only time it picks up is during the holidays, unless it's raining (like it is now).

The real blight on downtown MB is NOT the Pavilion, but rather the 5-6 blocks south of the Pavilion. It's full of cheap sleezy motels that any parent wouldn't let there kids walk through alone. If they really want a year round attraction in the downtown area of MB, let's start with those eyesores and leave the Pavilion alone!!

Myrtle Beach can't be THAT warm in the winter. If I were to drive south in the winter I would just go to Florida.

Sleazy motels huh? Man, I had no idea. It's been a long time since I have been down there.

Tina, Myrtle Beach rarely gets below 50* in the winter months, and is still 80* in Oct, and 70* in Nov(but Pavilion closes in Sept. or Oct. for some stupid reason, and dosen't open til maybe march).

The Ocean side of Ocean Blvd is high rise nice hotels, it's the sleazy motels on the Pavilion side, as well as the sleazy beach shops that need to go. With vulgar shirts and items in the windows and such, no parent wants to take the kids to see that. But the Pavilion never has a bad season.

If they'd clean up the store fronts and turn that into the Saks and higher end shops, as well as tear down some of the trasy motels and build amphatheaters and other attractions, and just clean it up and keep the Pavilion open at least on the weekends later in the year, it would be much better. The reason Down Town isn't a year round thing is because no one has ever tried staying open year round down there save for Ripley's and a couple shops. Even Peach's Corner closes up (I think).

Stupid Stupid Stupid!

The Family Kingdom is farther down and has not got the sleaze and trash to deal with, and when I was down there in Sept., it was open during the week and packed with families and young married couples. If they could do it as small as they are, Pavilion could too with more offerings on that part of the Blvd.
