Rumors Rumors Rumors
Every few months the rumor mill cranks up again about Pleasure Island. We're never really sure if old rumors are just recirculating or if these are actually new rumors. Certainly all those buildings sitting empty when they could be earning revenue, even temporarily, does lend itself to speculation. So since it's been awhile since we've visited the mill, I thought it would be a good time to do so.
1. The Adventurers Club reopening in some form (dinner show?) rumor is still floating around out there.
2. The 8TRAX/Mannequins reopening in some form rumor is still out there. We know the clubs have been gutted but that doesn't mean someone couldn't put new, modern electronics in and reopen it. Supposedly the dance floor in Mannequins is still there. The latest version of this rumor had 8TRAX reopening again as a 70's Club and Mannequins reopening with the dance floor but perhaps with a different music format. The magic in Mannequins has always been that revolving floor!
3. A source says the rumor about Disney Quest shutting down to be replaced with an ESPN Zone is true.
4. Soundstage and Motion become restaurants under the latest rumors.
5. Sources indicated that there might be a PI announcement in July.
6. Finally, and this is really whacky beyond belief....the Virgin Megastore is going to house a display of gowns formerly owned by....get this...Princess Diana. No, quit laughing! That's the rumor.
So there you have them. And all of them (except #6) are viable possibilities! :)
