Theme Park coming to Houma?



WTF? Who in the hell thinks this will be sucessful? This has disaster written all over it.

quote:

Jeff Hensley has continued to seek financial backing for his $400 million Bon Temps Family Theme Park project, which was originally estimated to cost $700 million


quote:

The project calls for a theme park, hotel and outdoor shopping mall in the


quote:

Later phases would include another hotel, condos, a convention center and one or two other projects, Hensley said.


quote:

Hensley has also reached out to some “Iron Chefs” about establishing a restaurant in the mall along with a Hard Rock Café. And he said he would use environmentally friendly methods to develop the project.


I can see the shirts now:
Hard Rock Cafe
Houma

quote:

“Most investors ask ‘why not New Orleans?' But they don't realize New Orleans is not what it used to be since the hurricane. Houma is now so packed and so busy it just makes more sense to put it here.”


Is this guy on dope? Good grief, anyone who gives money to these goofballs should be beaten over the head with a tack hammer.

Urban legend. Walt Disney loved Louisiana (hence the themed areas in Disneyland and WDW but no proof he ever planned to build here. Disney purchases land all over the world and does nothing with most of it.

It isn't busy enough to sustain a park. Also, most of the population is working in the oil industry in some form. It isn't exactly a 9-5 job.

They will have tattoo parlors all over the place to give you a neck tattoo to remember your visit by.

No. Just really really really really really delusional. He had a page on FB but deleted it, now you have to be friends with his page (it's called Houma Theme Park or something but he set it up as a person with that name) and it can only have so many friends...I was amused and friended him. Some of the crap he posts is hysterical and if you say anything bad about the park, he deletes your comments.

A friend and I thought it'd be funny to just make a page on FB called "Bigger and Better Louisiana Theme Park" and friend him and everyone else he is friends with and then just promise everything he is promising + 1

ETA: This guy owns no land yet btw...and I don't even know if where he wants to put it is for sale. I very highly doubt this park ever happens.

It is kind of crazy for sure.

I'm just looking for Houma to start and complete the sports complex off 311 which will be very nice.

There was a thread a while back with pictures. It was awesome. He plans on putting it on 311 by all the oil patch facilities. Dude has visions alright.
