    Hopefully within the next 10 year's or less, we'll finally have a downtown core we can be proud of. We may have Cityscape and a Fry's will be opening up, but it's not enough. Downtown still has a long way to go,as well as a lot improvements before it can be considered as a tourist destination.
    It would be cool if they can build a few theme parks out here. We have the space! That's for sure.

    Castle & Coasters? Sure, if you want an antiquated “Amusement Park” with minimal ride options… Try The Music Museum (MIM), The Butterfly Pavilion, The Heard Museum, Spring Training Games, Six Flags Hurricane Alley Waterpark, etc. The creators of this video missed the mark!

    Yup if it fun to go or something to see the state of Az shuts it down. Like access trails to lakes. Or how about the camping spots with asphalt and concrete and bbq’s with metal shade awning. Still have the original tire tracks from builders a decade ago. Never ever open the gate for public use. Not enough employees to control area so build with permits get their money then shut it all down because it was never in the plans to be used. Just for the money they Initially get. Shut down fr402 at bartlet lake then filled to the asphalt road so no one could access the lake on holiday weekend! Land preservation they say but the rain has made the original trail of 35+yrs a single track 4’ deep rut in the ground. No fire access for firefighters now and deadly thick brush they won’t keep under control. Az will burn the the ground this year and quiet frankly I want it to. Maybe they’ll realize trails are firebreaks and safe access points and hold out spots for hot shots. Thanks for killing our finest for the sake of your pocket books you bunch of hypocrites. Hate Az life now with all these people and state owned lands. Literally shut down desert east of valley. Queen valley coke ovens are a deadly pursuit now with land owners shooting guns at visitors. Superstition closed all around queen valley. 201 area closed for land preservation then built homes on it. Never needing battle of being hated for loving nature and wanting to enjoy it. Thanks Mexicans for never picking up trash nor wearing helmets in side by sides and killing occupants inside when crash. Every weekend. Rarely see non Hispanics dying every weekend from recklessness. Just a weird stat I’ve noticed. 15 for 15 now. Had to help sheriff find 7 people last weekend who crashed and crushed one occupants head. No helmets 7 people on 4seat razor going 45+mph on tight trails. Alcohol induced driver. Every weekend. 10yrs from now there will be nowhere we can off-road legally.

  • DO NOT GO HIKING IN THE SUMMER! People are often resuced from heat related illnesses, people die doing this. Don't go to the zoo in the summer as well, the animals are just as miserably hot as anyone else. Just don't come in the summer..

    Sumerian Tiger? Sumeria is the oldest known civilization located in the fertile crescent. Present day Iraq. No tigers there. But there is the Sumatran Tiger from Indonesia. BIG difference.

  • Ummm…what about Hurricane Harbor??? Salt River Tubing??? iFly??? I don't even live there yet and I know this. Weak video.

  • As a AZ native, I wanna know who the hell came up with this list?!?! Castles and coasters as the #1 thing to do…really?!?!? 🙄.

  • Pointing out things you think are worth going to are fine, but not sure how you missed really MAJOR ATTRACTIONS. If you are going to mention sights that have native American names, PLEASE get the pronunciation correct. When you don't you sound like the new weather man in town or not a native fore certain. Possibly you can go back in and edit the sound track.
