The Amusement Park will provide a place of enjoyment for families in the Region and a welcome place for local Ghanaian's and the West African Market to come for family entertainment and fun. The Amusement Park will promote increased activity in the Tourism Sector by the need for Restaurants and Hotel accommodations for out of town visitors coming to the Park.
