Guam - With the Liberation Carnival scheduled to end next week, Tagada Guam hopes to build an amusement park on Guam offering residents another form of entertainment on a grander scale. According to documents from Guam Land Use Commission, Tagada Guam is requesting a tentative development application to allow for the construction of the amusement park off of Pale San Vitores Road next to the Ohana Bayview and Pacific Place Building.

Tanota Partners' Michael Ysrael tells KUAM News that Tagada president Hong Soon Im is renting the property from his family's company. Documents state the lot measures at 11,677 square meters but the actual park will only utilize approximately 3,763.58 square meters for a period of seven years.

The parcel consists of a lower level and an upper level and will be done in two phases. Phase one will erect three rides including a 35-degree-to-35-degree swing called The Viking, a gravity defying ride called the Tagada and bumper cars. Phase two will consist of an inflatable balloon ride rising to 100 feet above the ground and a 3-D plane ride.

Estimated costs for the project have not been released yet.

Documents state that Department of Agriculture and Guam Environmental Protection Agency have no objection regarding the plans and see no major impacts to the property. Tagada Guam representative W.B. Flores and Associates will make a request for the plan at tomorrow's GLUC regular meeting at 1:30pm.
