I dropped by Pier Park yesterday to tell a vendor there that their picture had run in an article in the Atlanta Journal Constitution. I had my camera so I took a short walk over to the new Miracle Strip amusement park to see how it was coming along. You can see from the pictures below that the rides are almost 100% ready to go. The developers, Ted and Jenny Meeks told me that they were about a week away from opening the mini-amusement park.
Jenny told me a bit about the project. One of most interesting parts is that it will be great to have the very sames rides from Miracle Strip restored to their original condition. Over the years, thousands of visitors and locals grew up at Miracle Strip. “Not only will it bring back some great childhood memories for many but the rides will let parents share some of their childhood with their kids.”
Pretty much all that remains is the landscaping and then Miracle Strip at Pier Park will start entertaining another generation on Panama City Beach.
