Imagine Hospitality to build family destination resort I


magine Hospitality is to build a family destination resort in the City of Hollister, Missouri, a suburb of the entertainment capital of Branson. The


575,000-square-foot resort will be situated on 68 acres within the Hollister city limits. The property will feature an array of amenities aimed at attracting and entertaining multiple generations of families. It’s understood that the resort will provide each guest – no matter how young or old – with the opportunity to interact in “unique” ways with a collection of some of the world’s most popular entertainment, attraction and media brands. This family resort, which represents an estimated


$300 million investment in the community, will be a transformative economic-development project in this Ozark Mountain town. The property, which will create an estimated 450 new jobs, will feature a 100,000-square-foot indoor themed waterpark, 450 guest rooms and cabins, many of which will be specially themed, six to eight themed restaurants and dining experiences, 40,000 square feet of family entertainment space, 10,000 square feet of retail space, 30,000 square feet of convention space ideal for corporate meetings and family reunions, and both adult and themed children’s spas.


“We’re so pleased to bring the world’s first of


these family-friendly, branded destination resorts to the vibrant vacation area of hollister and branson,” said Bruce Neviaser, CEO and Managing Member of Imagine Resorts. “This resort will be an exciting addition to the area, and we look forward to being


an active member of the business community. In short, we’re thrilled to be welcomed into the region’s tourism family.” The goal is to break ground for the project in the


first half of 2021, with a grand opening slated for 2023.


Cedar Point reduces hours


Cedar Point, Sandusky, Ohio, has reduced its operating hours and is now closed during the week. Like most parks in the U.S. it is experiencing low attendance because of the pandemic. It has also had staff shortages. According to park spokesperson Tony Clark,


“Cedar Point is adjusting its operating hours to better align the park operation with the needs of our guests during the pandemic.” The park is open weekends only through September 7. The park has discontinued its


20


advanced reservation system, another indication that attendance was below expectations. It had developed a detailed plan designed to keep guests and employees safe, reducing capacity, but this proved to be unnecessary. Previously, the park had postponed its planned 150th Anniversary celebration and their new attraction, the Snake River Expedition, a riverboat ride, to 2021. Kings Island, another Ohio-based Cedar Fair park, also has reduced its hours .
