Planning board shoots down plans for new Orlando Thrill Park
Written by Domenik Jost
The Orlando municipal planning board met today to vote on a proposed new Orlando Theme Park. The board unanimously voted to reject three zoning changes that would have been required to move forward with the plans to develop this park off of International Drive.Tweet
Orlando Thrill Park Partners first proposed the plans to build the park next to the Tangelo Park neighborhood back in November of last year. It had plans to build a park with several coasters including one that was to be over 400 feet tall.
Orlando Thrill Park Partners now have five days to appeal to the Orlando City Council over the planning board's rejection. WESH reports that the City Council is expected to either accept or reject the recommendations made by the planning board at its May 23rd meeting.
Update: Here's an artist's concept of the proposed amusement park.
