Just what Orlando needs . . . more competition for the tourist dollar.
The new park titled, Orlando Thrill Park, hopes to fill a niche left open by a lack of a pure thrill and unthemed coaster park in the Orlando Area. While it is true that there isn't a pure coaster park in the area, there are plenty of excellent and well themed coasters in Orlando at Sea World, Universal, Disney and 8 more just down the road in Tampa at Busch Gardens.
The park will open with 14 proposed rides. Our good friend Brady at the LA Times Funland Blog has a photo gallery of the proposed attractions and an excellent article on the new park.

Well, what do you think? Does Orlando need a "Thrill Park"? Or is the type of tourist drawn to Orlando looking for Disney/Universal style themed entertainment?
