Fun Attractions

This is one thing the Huntsville is in Desperate need of. Times are changing and this generation of Huntsville you always have to travel outside of Huntsville to have fun. We are off to a good start with Shakalaka Trampoline Arena opening soon. Huntsville needs to be a city of Fun as well as great food, events and shopping. Something like Andretti (Go Karts & Games), a better water park than Southern Adventures and a Fun Center with laser tag. Something to get kids off their phones and internet and to keep inner city kids from getting in trouble.

Last but Definitely not least a Theme Park. (Six Flags Rocket City maybe?) All of this would make people stop through Huntsville traveling on their way to Atl, Bham, Nashville and Memphis.

When I was a kid in Huntsville there was Chuck e cheese, Discovery Zone, Southern Adventures and The Park in Madison. All of these places kept us busy on the weekends.

  1. Very true. Activities for young professionals, music venues that aren't just loud dance halls. Work is in progress for something like Punch Bowl Social, Kings, Lucky Strike, etc. The concept at Bridge street was not a national group, the location and signage was terrible, etc, etc. We know we are building the city for those under forty five. We are in conversations with concepts most people here have never heard of. You know what you like and what you want. But just like the iPod, iPhone, iPad, there are many things out there you don't know that you want. We are working on it all!

    That Space City Theme Park is the coolest thing I've seen in some time.

  4. A frequent complaint about this city is: "There's nothing to do for fun." Keep it in perspective. This is very much a working town, like Houston. We have enough fun, typical for this size city, but people come to Huntsville mainly for their work. And people also leave Huntsville mainly because of work. Our city attracts many special jobs that you cannot find just anywhere.

  5. We need a Dave and Busters and a water park just to name a few. Also more fun restaurants like Joe's Crab Shack!

      Unfortunately we don't have enough ppl in the city for a Dave and Busters. I think it requires a million ppl if I'm not mistaken. Google "Main Event Entertainment". I contacted them about opening a location at Bridge Street or somewhere else. They said when they expand they'll take a look at Huntsville. I believe with all these new developments (Over a million square feet) Coming to Hsv we should get a lot of restaurants ppl have been waiting for for years.

  6. It sounds like the law of inertia. Once a city grows beyond a certain size, everything moves there.

    Businesses don't get successful by simply moving to where people are. They must be innovative and take risks.
