Branson, MO -- A developer announced plans to build a $600 million attraction in Branson that will include an aquarium, 300-room resort hotel and indoor water park. Pinnacle Falls if approved will hopefully open in 2008 on 300 acres of land west of Celebration City theme park.

David Cushman, a Branson developer and a consultant Mel Bilbo, former CEO of Silver Dollar City announced the project.

The project calls for mountain city with a European theme to be built. The year-round attraction, built around a 300-room resort hotel will include shops and restaurants that will extend out lining manmade waterways. An aquarium and indoor water park are also major components of the project.
