There have been two semi-serious proposals.

1. A few of the big gaming companies (Boyd, etc.) were proposing a North Downtown casino in the vicinity of Qwest Center, but it was voted down, opposed by strange bedfellows such as Ernie, Ozzie, and Warren.

2. One of the tribes did have some land just across the Iowa line just north of North Downtown and planned a casino, but some TLA put the kabosh on it a couple years ago.

I'm puzzled why this project never came to fruition... The site looks pretty legit  :shock:

It doesn't at all look like a Jr. High class project.

I assume his amusement park never got off the ground in Pennsylvania either?

This about the time when the graphic artists here weigh in with talk about how pixelated the fonts on the site are, or something like that.

I ran across Port Nebraska's yesterday and asked if he gave up on his dream. I got an almost immediate response....

We have not given up on Port Nebraska. We have had other priorities that we are working on. We will be getting back to the Nebraska project at a later date.

I'm not one to never say never, but this project having any chance is about as close to a never as you'll find, lol..

There is a reason the term "Minarded" resonates so clearly with folks who have contributed regularly over the years on this forum...

I wonder if Mr. Minard is disguising himself as a band of Indians now? Down in Foley, Alabama, a band of Indians just announced that they are going to build an amusement park that is more upscale than Six Flags, leaning more towards being Disney-like. The amusement park when it opens, will have more than 20 rides and one of the biggest roller coasters in the Southeast. They haven't broke ground yet, but expect the amusement park to be open by Memorial Day weekend. I wonder if it will have a 3 story merry-go-round too?

Welcome to the three feathers amusement park!

The giant roller coaster is next to the Smoke Shop. The cheap booze shop is on the other side of the log ride. The casino is right next to the merry go round (in fact, we use the merrygoround as a betting wheel. We get the RPMs up and bet on which kid looses it first...
