CentrePointe developers have for years looked in all the wrong places for a feasible real estate project when the solution is under their noses. Fill the pit with water and develop a Jonah and the Whale project to complement the Noah’s Ark being constructed in nearby Grant County.
Tourists could cap their Ark visit with a tour of the Whale, the highlight being a detailed guided tour of Jonah’s trip through the whale’s mouth and stomach.
A large café in the center of the stomach would serve the preferred food of the whale, non-human of course. An enclosure named the Rumble Room should be located adjacent to the café and feature Jonah and the Rumblers playing suitable music for the rumble two-step.
The pit is large enough to install a few extra aquatic attractions, such as an underwater mermaid ballet, a faux reef for snorkelers and dolphin rides for children.
