Just so you guys know--Thomas Kinkade's brother is a TCU professor.  He is in charge of the estate and ironically reads this board.  So do try and keep the comments appropriate.

 

Thank you, but I stand by my statement.

 

All art does not appeal to all people.

One time I posted a opinion to have the Olympics at TMS. One member said "It was the stupidest idea he had ever heard " . And one poster told another poster "don't get your panties in a wad" for his opinion about Fort Worth overshadowed by Dallas.  I am ok with different opinions. But why does this guy get away with talk like that ? Do we need to have a brother who is a  TCU professor to have appropriate comments  on our opinions  ?

Six months on, the Dallas Morning News has an update on the theme park. Or, to be precise, an update on the lack of updates: Planned $3.5 billion Fort Worth theme park still a mystery

Ugh... can we please just STOP with this already? We know it's not happening.

I'm not quite sure who you mean by "US". Do you mean citizens of Fort Worth? The City of Fort Worth? Members of the Fort Worth Forum? 

 

I can easily see people in Dallas who are aware of the news releases about this fantasy project lifting their eyebrows, scratching their heads, and laughing at each turn in this bizarre story, much the same as informed people in Fort Worth have. But what have the people, the city, or Forum members done to deserve the same treatment. At the first limited news release that hinted at some sort of entertainment complex I suppose the city was excited, but probably a little confused as to why they had not been in touch with this mystery developer, and the citizens probably thought that some sort of alternative Six Flags was perhaps a viable idea, maybe... But there was skepticism among Forum members from the beginning. Yeah, citizens came out to enjoy the free fireworks but I don't think anyone ever really took the bait all the way, except perhaps a few small investors who are too embarrassed at this point to talk about it. I would guess there have been similar and worse schemes floated in Dallas over the years; life in the big city, you know.

That video alone was worth the post.

I'm sure the cost will be equal to the ratio of leprechauns to unicorns.

Since it's close to Thanksgiving, one thing that Fort Worth can't be thankful for are these fly-by-night flim-flam artists.  This qualifies for the "whatever happened to..." column.  I like Jeriat's sense of humor.

Maybe they're just waiting for the Panther Island bridges to be completed!

 

They announced a partnership with Provident Global Capital, which I cannot find anything substantial about.

or the T & P redevelopment!

Maybe it's buried somewhere in this thread, but does anyone know if our fair city or the chamber etc ever gave any money or incentives etc to the DreamVision schemers?

I almost certain they didn't get anything out of the city.  The mayor was at the announcement and gave what looked like a pretty reluctant "we'll see" endorsement, but it didn't go much further than that.

Yeh I think the most they gave was the rights to use Main St for an evening (which is better than it's usual function)

The fireworks were fun. Was always curious who paid for it. Good to know it likely wasn't you and me.

Good riddance to these con artists.  And a lesson learned by Fort Worth, among other cities.

Wondered what happened to this group. Here is another article from our own Ft Worth Press. I knew several folks who got really excited to the point of investing in this thing. Fortunately, once I showed them myriad of past deals like this this of Disney coming to town, indoor Snow Parks etc... that have gone on for probably 50 years or more, they cooled down. There were actually some pretty high profile people involved in the press event who had ties to Disney and such, I wonder if they were scammed also or part of the scam.
