Small Amusement Park Planned for Tumon

216

Guam -Tagada Guam went before the Guam Land Use Commission Thursday afternoon seeking approval for a small amusement park they want to build in Tumon. The amusement park will be located on San Vitores Road between the Bayview Hotel and the Pacific Palace Building.

The project is backed by Japanese and Korean developers. It is slated for completion by the middle of next year.

WB Flores and Associates is the consultant on the project and President Willie Flores told the commission the amusement park will includes 6 rides that will be built in 2 phases.

The first phase will see the construction of  3 rides including a large swing in the shape of a Viking ship; a wheel shaped ride that uses centrifugal force as it spins to pin riders against the wall as it gyrates, and bumper cars. Phase two tentatively calls for a balloon ride that will allow guests to float up to about 100-feet above the ground and a 3-D plane ride.

However, no action was taken on the amusement park application of some confusion over the lot numbers named in the lease agreement. But the Land Use Commission indicated that once that issue has been worked out, the project is likely to receive approval.
