crazy horse's avatar Has anyone ever heard of this park in orlando?

There was just a fire at this closed theme park this week. I looked around but came up with nothing more than that they closed in 2003 and that it was not a very popular park. The park is located near the disney entrance.

Anybody been there, and what type of attractions did the park have?

what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.
Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.
I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

I don't think it can be said enough... search engines are your friend!

A quick Google search produced these charms:

Acoustic Viscosity's avatar Crazy Horse, thanks for posting your question. I had no idea of the existence of that park either.

Maybe it's just me, but I find the story of this park to be tremendously sad. It looks like an overwhelming amount of meticulous work (and a LOT of money!) went into creating it, and it's definitely something I would have liked to have seen in person. Granted there was the mention of some government-related influence, but nevertheless, it looked like a really cool place with extraordinary attention to detail. A shame that so many worked so hard on a place that ultimately became a ruin.

^That can be said about any ancient civilizations as well.

It did look quite neat though, alot of detail and I agree it is a shame, just didn't pull butts through the gates.

"It is set to become the Orlando Galleria" One, is that a mall? Two, shouldn't it be called the "Kissimmee Galleria", since it is after all in Kissimmee and no where near Orlando? *** Edited 7/30/2007 8:14:46 AM UTC by SONiC Senshi***

Acoustic Viscosity's avatar Well the Cincinnati, OH airport is in Kentucky and (New York) Giants Stadium is in New Jersey. ;) *** Edited 7/30/2007 12:56:58 PM UTC by Acoustic Viscosity***

rollergator's avatar From what little I recall, the "government involvement" on the part of the PRC amounted to mismanagement and corruption. Seemed to be more cultural exhibit than amusement area...and I thought more viable than Praiseland, er, Holy Land Experience. Guess I'm willing to be wrong more than I thought, LOL... :)

Can't help but think that this somehow relates to the NRCM thread...but how you all drove on I-4 without seeing the billboards is beyond me... ;)
