Uh, yeah, deja vu...

This "Kingdom Wealth Builders LLC" tried to buy GP at auction in 2011

A few months later, after they couldn't actually shake out the money, it sold to someone else for $6.5 million
http://bransontrilakesnews.com/news_free/article_71e92e40-eec9-11e0-95e0-001cc4c03286.html

And now Kingdom is back a few years later to try again? Do they have the money this time? Who was the idiot to pay $6.5 million only to do nothing with the property and sell for over a million less after a few years? I'm not holding my breath for anything good to come here anytime soon.

Wasn't it someone that owned some Ripley's and whatnot.

I can't be the only one that thinks a Great Wolf Lodge or Kalahari would go over VERY WELL in Branson

Even though I would never spend the money on Great Wolf Lodge, Your'e right one in the Branson area, close or in town would be a good hit..

I'm ready for anything to happen to it. Such a huge, prime piece of property going to waste all these years... it's been a damn shame.

I'm really not optimistic about this company in particular, but if they can at least get to work and maybe get a few concerts booked, then that's something.

Branson screams for a massive indoor waterpark. Cabin fever getaways would keep it slammed on weekends in winter. I personally would like a WilderNess in the Smokies that has indoor and outdoor.

The market has flown past what Grand Country offers.

This would be a horrible  location for it, traffic wise. I hope the proposed one for across the Celebration City property takes flight.

I also think Sight and Sound should develop an American History based show theater also that does what their biblical show does.  I'd put one here and in Williamsburg area.

Thats an interesting idea.. BUT IF it was based on acutual historical facts.. You would have people screaming!  Racism, favoratism, political corruption, and anything else that sombody/anybody could cry about..

Think about the crap we are seeing everyday now..  MOST of it is History related..  Racism?,  Rebel Flag?, National Monuments?  Names of Football teams (indian related).. "Dixie" Stampede,  Also they changed their Dixie show a couple of years ago..   The list goes on and on..... ::) ::)

Not wanting to to start an arguement, this is my opinion... Great Idea...  But lots of red flags. OH NO!! Red?? as in communist? is that a racial thing???   LOL>>>>.........

They already cover something that is 'controversial' with their Biblical productions. This isn't California

No, this isnt Calif..    But that would not stop the controversial issue that people would come up with nationwide...

Of course we are talking about something that doesnt exist and probably wont.. ::) ::)
