The Poarch Band of Creek Indians have unveiled detailed plans for OWA, a $500 million tourist destination currently under construction on 520 acres at the intersection of The Foley Beach Express and County Rd. 20 in Foley, nine miles north of Orange Beach, US. A 14-acre lake will be at the center of the unique project that features a themed amusement park that has been described as a hybrid of Six Flags theme park and Disney World, a 150-room Marriott Town Place Suites hotel, and 44,000 feet of retail space set to open next summer. Phase One, which includes the 150-room hotel, retail and dining spaces, amusement park and lake, will open next summer. Future plans call for a waterpark, additional hotels, a condominium complex and a resort level RV park. The development is adjacent to the City of Foley’s $40 million sports tourism complex which features 16 state-of-the-art outdoor fields and a 90,000 square foot indoor events center that is slated to open in the summer of 2017.
