A Theme Park For The King

 

04 March 2002

Elvis Presley is to be honoured with a $500 million theme park in his home state of Mississippi.
The 'Elvis Presley Ranch' will be built just 15 minutes from the late singer's famous Graceland home in Memphis.
Part of the ranch that Presley bought in 1967 will house the future complex which will also feature golf courses, amusement rides and a wedding chapel.
The president of project developers EPR Enterprises LLC, Mr. Paul D'Agnese, said: "Our objective for this resort is to build a place where Elvis fans and visitors can experience a part of his life in a setting that is wholesome, fun and memorable for the entire family."
According to sources, the opening ceremony for the theme park will be held on August 16, which will mark the 25th anniversary of Presley's death.
Meanwhile, it's reported that The King's music will feature on Disney's forthcoming animated film, 'Lilo and Stich'.
