The past two years have seen much ado about, well, nothing so far in the case of the proposed $161 million theme park near Grayling. The next hurdle needing to be crossed is the proposed $5.2 million dollar sale of 1,700 acres of state-owned land. It looks like the July 10 Michigan Natural Resources Commission meeting in Munising will decide if the sale will go through. If approved at that meeting, the final approval (don't you love how many layers government has?) could happen as early as August.
Much has been said both for and against this proposed theme park, but with the price of gas how far away will folks drive for this amusement park? Sure, in-state folks will probably check it out rather than driving all the way to Cedar Point in Sandusky, OH, but will there be enough of a draw to make this pay?
