Theme Parks Travel: Pack Up the Kids... And the Bible
Attention fans of Tennessee and Christianity: Rumor has it that developers are close to deciding on the specific location for a Bible-inspired theme park in the state. A spokesman for the Entertainment Development Group wouldn't discuss any specifics regarding the park this week, but stated that the company was close to making an announcement.
The Nashville-area theme park has been in the works for more than a year, but with the new development group taking over, some believe that it's this is close to becoming a reality.
The people behind the park plan to have attractions based on biblical history and archeology but won't take an ideological stance on the Bible. Of course, residents are a little apprehensive: Many don't want the traffic and congestion associated with a theme park so close to their homes.
