Theme park in WilliamsBy Luci Scott | Arizona Builder’s Exchange

Developers are considering a $400M, 488-acre theme park near the Grand Canyon to draw even more tourists from within Arizona and to boost the draw of northern Arizona for out-of-staters.

Michigan-based Granger Group is also eyeing property in metro Phoenix for a second major theme park, which could be a Disney park, a Six Flags, a Busch Gardens or one run by any of at least seven other companies.

Developers aren’t making a public announcement about the parcel in Maricopa County because negotiations are still under way.

The theme-park site in Williams is in the northwest portion of the city on Interstate 40.  Williams, which is 32 miles west of Flagstaff, has a year-round population of 3K and developers say the theme park could employ at least 2K people.
