Disney to develop a theme park in downtown Columbia
maglev thrill ride that will rocket riders around the Columbia Mall at speeds of 150 mph and a nightly electric light parade similar to the one held nightly at the Magic Kingdom at Disney World.
While the announcement was a surprise to many the plans are similar to some that the Rouse Company had explored early in the planning of Columbia.
Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, Denmark. No longer will Columbia be seen as a sedate, 1970's styled suburban community. With today's announcement Columbia will have a regional draw for people to visit that the Columbia Mall has never achieved. As one Disney spokesperson explained, "No one will ever say Columbia is plain vanilla anymore!"
