Wallack Transformation Of Orlando’s International Drive Continues: To Include Newest Permanent Resident Hulk Hogan
Skyplex Poised To Realign Balance Of Power From Major Theme Parks
Orlando, FL (April 17, 2017) – With construction of the 141’ Hollywood Plaza Entertainment Complex adjacent to Mango’s Tropical Café skyrocketing, Developers Joshua and David Wallack continue to re-invent and transform the bustling tourist district that is International Drive with their latest announcements, including Hollywood Plaza’s newest resident Hulk Hogan, whose newly opened Hogan’s Beach Shop will move to its permanent home on the ground level of the Complex upon completion. The 880-parking space mega-structure will also house the high-end Italian restaurant Circo Orlando, part of the Le Cirque Restaurant brands, on the top floor, in addition to a soon-to-be-announced third tenant on the main level. Parking in the Complex is estimated to open to guests by the end of this year, with Circo, Hogan and the remaining tenant spaces to open in 2018.
“WrestleMania 33 drove in the masses to Hogan’s Beach Shop, and we are beyond thrilled to welcome the most legendary superstar in the history of professional wrestling to I-Drive,” says Joshua Wallack.
“It’s a love affair with Orlando!” Hulk Hogan said. “I’m here with my fans, and Hulkamania is running wild on I-Drive.” Hogan added, many former WWE legends will be visiting all throughout the summer and beyond. “I’ve got big plans for this, Brother… Giant plans!” Hogan has over 8M followers on social media.
Development for the highly-anticipated $500 million Skyplex Entertainment Complex could also start to commence by the end of the year. Housing the world’s tallest rollercoaster ‘Skyscraper™’ standing at over 500-feet tall, in addition to several additional attractions to include the 450-foot drop ride SkyFall, Abyss free fall dive experience SkyJump, the death-defying SkyLedge edgewalk, open-air promenade SkyPlaza, interactive venues, restaurants and retail. Skyplex will be centered around the area’s largest indoor theme park, which Wallack announces will be unlike any theme destination in Central Florida.
“As soon as you enter Skyplex, go up the escalator and underneath the rails of Skyscraper, you will be transported into the land we want you in,” says Wallack. To add he says, “The theme is completely different than Mango’s or anything else and will be a much-welcomed, major addition to the Central Florida. It will be one of the most unique developments in the world, with the most thrilling rides anywhere.”
As construction for Skyplex gets under way later this year, the 595-foot high tower for Skycoaster will go up first, which the thousands of visitors that converge on the busy tourist corridor will also be pleased to see. Additionally, rounding out the exciting I-Drive developments, popular nightlife destination Mango’s Tropical Café, which welcomed over 1M people in 2016, will have even more unmatched entertainment offerings with the addition of a rooftop level big enough for 1,000 people. The rooftop can commence once the parking is available next door.
“We are re-inventing International Drive with an entertainment bonanza of innovative, imaginative and revolutionary attractions and entertainment,” says Wallack. “This is only the beginning of what millions of visitors and locals will now and in the coming year finally start to see is an incredible transformation making the intersection of I-Drive and Sand Lake Road the most popular, desirable and electrifying locale for entertainment in the country.”
