It’s getting closer every day! City officials are recommending the Construction Partner for The Epic project after spending exhaustive time with 5 potential finalists. City officials will be recommending the Contractor to the City Council at the next City Council meeting. If approved, this will finalize your Epic team! Let the fun begin!
Water, Water Everywhere! Members of The Epic Design team traveled to Orlando to the International Association of Amusements Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) to visit all the major water slide and ride designers and developers. It was two days well spent as The Epic water consultant, Ramaker, Inc. set up a variety of meetings with project manager Andy Henning of HKS, Inc., City officials and other members of the project team. It was another necessary step in the making of The Epic!
Epic Encounters are still underway! Please let your friends know they can send in their Epic Dreams 24-hours a day at JoinTheEpic.com. Final meetings are being scheduled now as this process comes to an end.
