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.
