Orlando Attractions Update – Skyplex, the $460 million-plus entertainment complex slated for International Drive, isn’t done with all it wants to bring to the area — it also plans to add a surf park.
That’s on top of its already-announced portfolio of rides and experiences including a 500-foot-plus polercoaster, a drop tower, a zipline, a massive retail promenade, a 350-room hotel and more.
Developers have said that the Skyplex Surf Park will be on top of a 10-story, 2,200-space parking garage and will be made up of three pools – now that’s different!
