Family Center Thing?

Post by veeder21 » Wed Apr 11, 2007 12:15 am

Who knows anything about the new family/amusement/whatever center they're building? Any info on when it will open or what it will have?

I heard it was scheduled to open in May and will have some kind of go cart track...think it is to be called "Tailspins"?

It's actually called Tailfins. Pretty close, though.

Sounds like it will be a huge complex. The story in the PIB Gazette said that it will have go-karts, bumper boats, build-a-bear type thing, arcade, remote control boats and cars, pizza place, ice cream, picnic area, etc.

It's located on Toledo Avenue, over near the depot where the bus drops people off after picking them up at the Miller Ferry.

I think it will do well. PIB needs an inclusive place like that for the families with kids.

I didn't see any construction Friday-Sunday, but it's well on it's way to completion, but it's obviously behind schedule.

It's over by the dorms where several of the island's band's stay and the bar staff live. You'll see it on your left as you head downtown from Miller Ferry.

The go cart track looks like it will be fun. How will they deal with drunk drivers?

Memorial Day it didn't look like it was even close to being done.

The go-kart track looked about done but that was it.

Read in last months (or maybe the Feb issue??) PIB Gazette that Tailfins is going belly up. Not sure if it going to be open for this season or not.

It is going to open again this year, unless some thing comes up. But it is a go so far.

We went there once last summer and it was a joke. Hopefully, they work on their customer service issues or it might be a short ride. :cry:

it was bought by another island businessman and he is making some very substantial changes. It will be open this year and better than ever.
