First ride erected at Owa amusement park
FOLEY, Ala. (WPMI) —
Foley's Owa amusement and entertainment park seems to be right on schedule. Some of the amusement rides have already started arriving at the construction site.
Right now its an odd thing to see, mixed in with all the construction. A bright yellow amusement ride now sits surrounded by mounds of dirt, but officials say more rides should be popping up soon.
Local businesses such as the Wolf Bay Lodge are excited for the progress. They're hoping the park will have an affect on not just sales, but their employment too.
Right now there are 34 contractors employing more than 400 workers on site. The park is scheduled to open Memorial Day weekend 2017.
