Decades USA, an 800-acre theme park designed around rock & roll in the Eloy area, has gained preliminary approval from lawmakers yesterday, according to an article in the Arizona Republic by Matthew Benson. The revenue bonds neccessary for construction could get final approval as early as today according to the article.
According to the Decades USA website, a 2012 date is planned for opening the amusement park, which would serve as a living monument to Rock & Roll music, the artists and thrill seekers of all ages through an entertainment combination of shows and rides. The location between Phoenix and Tucson, in Pinal County, would be convenient for travelers as well as residents.
I hope the project progresses in a timely fashion--sure would be nice to drive an hour or so for a roller-coaster fix!
(UPDATE) The Arizona Legislature has approved certain tax measures to help move this project along--stay tuned!
