When you think of Mississippi you think of... SKIING! Yes folks, thats true. And if you don't believe us ask the folks at Myriad World Resorts, who announced a $1.9 Billion Dollar Megaresort for the gaming town of Tunica Mississippi. Casino, spa, snow park wrapped into one monstrous complex somewhere near nowhere that most people don't go.

25-1 this dosent get built.

Comments & Discussion:

I wouldn't be so quick to judge. With the Gulf Coast casinos still suffering from Katrina (The only ones currently open are the IP, the Isle of Capri, and The Palace. Some of the other are planning on opening sometime in the summer or by the end of the year.), Tunica has really seen an upswing in visitors. They even snagged airline service into the local airport from Atlanta. The casinos in the Tunica area (especially the Harrah's owned ones) have started a major ad blitz on tv in Atlanta. But still, I'd rather go to Vegas for the weekend than to Mississippi for a week.......

While this project seems a bit ambitious, it's no more ambitious than what's being done in Macau or even in Dubai.
