Today’s Las Vegas Sports Arena Project That Will Never, Ever Happen
Sometimes, a Las Vegas project is announced you know will never happen, ever, but it’s fun to talk about anyway.
A privately funded $1.3 billion arena has been proposed for the former site of Wet ‘n’ Wild, a popular water park, on the north end of the Las Vegas Strip.
The fanciful 862,500-square-foot arena would presumably be built on 27 acres between the new SLS Las Vegas and the abandoned Fontainebleau resort site. Because making up numbers out of the blue is a complete blast!
This arena project has been proposed by “former UNLV and NBA player Jackie Robinson, a Las Vegas businessman.” Heck, if he was a professional basketball player, he’s probably got $1.3 billion on him right now. Done deal.
The 22,000-seat arena would be able to host basketball, hockey, boxing, rodeos and concerts. Oh, and unicorn races!
This steaming pile of somebody’s drug-addled imagination has announced it will break ground in 2014, around the same time as pigs begin their much-anticipated flying.
