Opponents seek to end a bungee-jumping venue, citing environmental and safety concerns
The idea of a bungee-jumping venue is one of many potential uses of an old mine shaft in the East End of Providence, Rhode Island.
A proposed new facility at the old mine site on Broad Street would be the first to use an alternative energy such as solar panels to power, lights and refrigerators. The current owner of the mine site is fighting the new facility and plans to open a new hotel there by fall 2017.
A solar panel array is one of the possibilities to power the new facility, which would include a restaurant and bar.
The Bungee Jumping Parlor will have a restaurant and bar with a bar as well as the opportunity to jump off the wall without a rope.
The new hotel by the same name sits across the street from what was once the site of the old mine site.
The owners of the new venue want to open the new hotel and casino by fall 2017.
A proposal to build on the site by the same name is stalled, and they are instead looking to the site of a former bowling alley at the current site of the new casino.
The former bowling alley site became an option for a new hotel and casino by fall 2017.
The site of a proposed new casino by the same name is a former bowling alley at Broad and Clinton streets.
A proposed new multi-use facility in the East End of Providence, Rhode Island will host a restaurant and bar that would offer a “bungee jumping wall” to patrons, a new hotel and up to 10,000 square feet of casino space.
The new Bungee Jumping Parlor in the East End will include “high ceilings, large windows, and open areas for dancing, dining, and relaxation.”
The venue, located by the site of the former Northland bowling alley, is one of three alternative energy use projects proposed for the site. The first is a project to replace the site of the West End Casino with a $75 million hotel and casino.
