Finally a New Water Park for the Memphis area?

Recommended Posts

The former Harrah's site with two huge hotels and a park area screams for some type of family entertainment.




Here's to hoping it's a serious effort


Aerial of the former Harrah's property, it's huge. Heck the hotels, like I said a huge. They could phave all the room in the world for even a theme park, especially on the back side of the lake to the east on the abandoned golf course.

What they should do is make one of the hotels into a Great Wolf-style indoor water park but with a casino and eventually turn the golf course into a decent regional-style theme park.



Here's the fly in the ointment on that, the casino has to floating in Mississippi. The Grand and then Harrah's resort had the casino just inside the levee on an old oxbow with a smaller attached hotel. The casino was demolished. In the attached photo, the casino is shown in the upper left of the pic and the hotel attached. That's inside the level. It's taken on water at least twice during floods. It truly is a sprawlings complex, it was the largest outside of Vegas before the recession, the size of it all did it in first because of the cost to keep it open.


I've posted before about how Disney should have Mississippi Riverboat cruises and they should have bought this complex as the point of departure. Offer short 3 day one ways to New Orleans or 5 day round trips to New Orleans and back and the same for trip northward. With some grand trips that included it all thrown in. The two big resorts would be a mix of hotel and timeshare for DVC and they would share some attractions with riverboat patrons like a Tim and Huck themed indoor/ outdoor waterpark with dryside ropes courses and such.
