As for the theme park, there are so few details that it's impossible to predict the likelihood of what will happen. Will this "internationally branded" park be paid for by one of the big companies like Busch or Universal (or whoever the internationally known company might be)? Or is this going to be some sort of licensing deal to tack a brand name on something that the hotel builds? If the latter, then memories of the MGM Grand "theme park" rise uncomfortably to the surface. What a fiasco that was! I suppose someone like Cedar Fair could step up and build a park, but I have that's just idle speculation on my part. Without the resort giving more than vague hype.
Overall, I guess I agree with you Robert. I can see a lot of this project coming together but am not convinced that all of it will be developed. I would also be concerned that some of the more ambitious aspects could be closed within a year or two even if they are built.
However, didn't they learn from MGM Grand? Granted MGM didn't put all their effort into it at the end, but still. I would assume that they have the market
It costs a heck of a lot less to build and operate a waterpark than it does a theme park.
