Developer planning $600 million theme park for Branson in 2008

Kathryn Buckstaff

A longtime Branson developer announced today he will build a $600 million theme park with an aquarium, a 300-room hotel featuring an indoor water park and high tech special-effects entertainment.

Pinnacle Falls of Branson is expected to open in 2008 on 300 acres just west of Celebration City.

The property has been in David Cushman's family for 60 years. The Cushman family built Mutton Hollow, a theme park on the site of what is now Celebration City.

Consultant on the project is Mel Bilbo, a former CEO with Silver Dollar City.

The theme is a European mountain city with manmade waterways, themed restaurants and shops.

The hotel will create a year-around attraction, Cushman said. The park is expected to draw an estimated 400,000 new visitors to the area, providing new customers for other Branson attractions as well, Cushman said.
