Default Aruba water park? Morgan' Island

anyone have any updates on this, have they started building it???



http://www.aruba.com/phpNews/wmview.php?ArtID=476
Morganís Island is the name of the soon to be biggest water park in the Caribbean and Latin America. The park is currently awaiting the final permits to start building with a projected finishing date in early 2006. Construction is in the hands of Aquatika, responsible for construction of more than 1500 parks worldwide and will be constructed in the huge vacant territory south of La Cabana resort. The idea of the water park theme comes from the local company Impact NV. Studies have shown the project to be financially feasible. It will cover a total of 84.000 square yards, create 120 jobs and will be expecting 7000 daily visitors. Visitors will enjoy wild water rafting, water slides as high as 131 feet tall, canoe passages, waterfalls, swimming pools, water tubes, roller coasters, and a shopping mall. The park will have a beach and water that will function as sea. Beneath the man made sea coral habitat will be created and diving can be done. Visitors to the park can also pay an additional fee for the use of the spa and the 4 restaurants on the property

The land was being cleared as we were leaving the island at the end of November.

literally right next to Royal Cabana. The whole area from that road behind LaCabana going towards the water was being cleared in November when we were there. I have pics of it somewhere...I'll try to find them.

I Love Aruba Re: Aruba water park? Morgan' Island

I visited the Park Yesterday 1-29-09 and was shocked with the entry fees, but based on the few attendees, I found it a great value because there were no lines and it was far cheaper to pay this fee for me and my family vs. renting out the entire venue for our private use.

Although Morgan’s Island features two slide & tube towers, the Dragon Revenge and the Buccaneer Tower with slides, 2 and 4-person tube rides, radical twists and kamikaze dips, domed funnels, an extreme competitive toboggan, and a 21-meter vertical drop not all were open and operational. This was the theme for all of the attractions.
A giant kid-dedicated zero-entry pool area with water spouts and slides, is designed to entertain the young ones, was not open yet, they appeared to be making some finishing touches on painting around the edges of the pool area. Only one of the two giant wave pools was also open.

The staff was very friendly and the did their best to provide great service.

I'll post video of the park on YouTube under Morgans Island Aruba 2009

It was not cheap. I remember seeing a post whereby someone took a picture of the prices from the front office of Morgans Island Water Park. That was a good Idea. I wish I did. I think it was ~$65USD for an adult and ~$45USD for a child.
You can't bring any food or drink in.

It looked very closed to me. No cars in the parking lot, no people around anywhere. Must be a new record.

Like I said, a new record. I wonder if this was a project for the sole purpose of laundering money.
