NEWS: Margaritaville Biloxi already expanding

Postby ElvisLuv » Thu Oct 06, 2016 9:36 am

The new Margaritaville Resort in Biloxi has announced expansion plans that will include rides!

http://www.wlox.com/story/33318292/margaritaville-unveils-plans-to-expand-family-entertainment-center?clienttype=generic&sf37900053=1

Margaritaville appears to be a bigger success than developers expected. That's one reason they're ready to invest another $140 million into the east Biloxi family entertainment center.

Tuesday night, an attorney representing the Margaritaville development team shared the new plans with the Biloxi City Council. The conceptual drawing shown at the meeting included a Ferris wheel, other amusement park rides, and a second hotel tower.

"We've underestimated how much we needed family entertainment," attorney Michael Cavanaugh said.

Before the expansion begins, developers must sign a tidelands lease with the Secretary of State. That will give them control of the land to build their expansion. Developers also have their eyes on property north of Highway 90. The conceptual drawing uses that land for surface parking.

Margaritaville opened just as the summer tourism season started. Even though it sits between Golden Nugget and Harrah's, and it's zoned for casinos, owners maintain gambling will not be part of this family attraction.

The current plan is to open the new additions to Margaritaville in 2018.

Remember that GCI that was proposed for (now defunct) Miracle Strip in PCB, this would be a good home for it and Mississippi needs a coaster.

GCI would be a great fit with such twisty layouts. The coaster needs to have frequent changes in latitudes. ;)

Can you see the donkey in my toast?

Tulsa is a casino, I doubt it would happen.

Johnny Morris had mentioned partnering with them on a potential redo of Mud Island in Memphis to compliment the Pyramid Bait Shop but nothing has come of it.

Hey, hey, hey, back it up. I've never been to a Margaritaville, just thought the name was cool. :|

:lol: I was obviously kidding but they push Landshark hard since Jimmy Buffet / Margaritaville put their name on it.
