Poarch Creeks to construct incredible $500 million amusement park on Alabama's Gulf Coast

 


FOLEY, Ala. — “Owa” is the Muskogee Creek word for “big water,” but now it is also the name of South Alabama’s newest coming family attraction. On Wednesday, the Poach Band of Creek Indians announced their intention to develop a new entertainment complex in the city of Foley that will include a themed amusement park, a 150-room Marriott Town Place Suites hotel, and dozens of shops and restaurants.

According to a report from The Pulse, the project is expected to have a massive economic impact on South Alabama. It is estimated to create 3,500 new jobs, attract 1 million new visitors, and increase Baldwin County’s tourist spending by 7 percent, raising the local economic output by $250 million.
