Orlando Thrill Park Plans Abandoned

I-Drive Investors LLC dropped plans today to develop Orlando Thrill Park, a collection of high thrill rides and roller coasters, on International Drive in Orlando, Florida. The Orlando Municipal Planning Board has previously rejected zoning changes for the project, due to worries that park noise would affect homes nearby. I-Drive Investors LLC and the city have agreed to hold public hearings about land-use changes for the site, although plans for a thrill park will not be permitted. Representatve for the land owner Neil Frazee said that the developer will "return to the drawing board" and that there are no "alternative plans for the property at this point."
