Northern Michigan Theme Park Planned

By  | 

A year-round, 160 million dollar theme park is planned for northern Michigan.

Main Street America would be built on 18-hundred acres in Grayling, about 50 miles east of Traverse City.

Roller coasters, a water park, indoor surfing, snowmobile and race car tracks are planned.

Visitors would also see snowboarding areas, a working farm, a 200-acre campground, an amphitheater, hotel and stores.

Rochester, Michigan-based Axiom Entertainment says work could begin this year with a partial park opening in summer 20-10.

Grayling Township Supervisor Terry Wright says Main Street America will be the biggest tourist attraction in Michigan when it opens.

It is expected to employ 2,000 people, including 700 full-time workers.
