Plans for Orlando Thrill Park meet mixed reactions

Posted | Contributed by Jeff

The residents of Tangelo Park raised concerns about noise and traffic that could come with the theme park. That could make for a tough sell for developers of the Orlando Thrill Park. Local businesses like Fun Spot believe the park would help all businesses in the area, including their own.

International Drive is already nightmare on ice. This would only exacerbate the problem. I guess they want to be in the entertainment hotbed.....but there is so much vacant land over in Kissimmee/Celebration area.

Yeah but it's Kissimmee, I prefer to avoid going to Kissimmee when ever possible. The land looks too small for a park, but just to the east there is vacant land along the Turnpike that is the slightly larger than Sea World Orlando's complex.

I think that they should go to the Kissimmee area and build it. The Orlando area is way too flooded with parks, hotels, entertainment complexes perod!

Orlando is a tourist destination. What would you expect?

I've been to the area where they are proposing this new park many times. when I lived in Orlando, I went to the movie theater in that area to get away from all the coasters and attractions. I seem to remember in the exact plot of land, that there were talks of a Nascar themed park. This was ten years ago.

A mini Ceadr Point style park sounds very interesting. The Orlando area, as well as Kissimmee, would be perfect for this kind of attraction, because of the busy tourism there. I think it would be pretty successful no matter where in that area they put it.

I don't see it going near Tangelo Park though. Not everyone wants a busy, noisy theme park built in there back yard.

Some of the new rides we have today are very quiet other than screams from people riding them. The mixed reactions I think come from people who just want something to complain about. I mean there was going to be a supermarket built a town over from where I live and people, who had almost no reason to complain, sued the supermarket people and the place ended up not building it after people complained for like 10 years. I think that this Orlando thrill park could go on for a long time before anything ever happens.
