Tooele Six Flags Rumors Squelched, But We Still Have MMP!

Miller Motorsports ParkWhen I heard that [1] Superintendent Mike Johnsen of Tooele School District talked about a Six Flags coming to Tooele County at the PTA Convention on May 19, I began to search for confirmation. It seemed a fairly credible source and as I searched for more information and came up completely empty handed I thought that I could either “break” the “story” here on my blog or lay low in case it was just a rumor. I’m glad I decided to lay low because, as it turns out, they are indeed just rumors as reported by every major news source in Utah.
Some people, including many Tooele residents, will be happy and will no longer have to contemplate a move to a smaller town. I wouldn’t have minded, having been to a Six Flags in Texas and just loving it, but I know a lot of people who would detest it. Some of the people who were born and raised in Tooele are lamenting the growth that it has already experienced. Still others moved to Tooele many years ago, seeking the small town life. Little do they realize that they’re the ones who started this wave of growth, and it’s not stopping anytime soon.

My family and I visited the new [2] Miller Motorsports Park yesterday and watched the motorcycles race. It was very fun and when I found out that the ticket prices are very affordable, I was an instant fan. Certainly the opening of the new race track will only continue to fuel the growth. I’m one who doesn’t mind. I love Tooele for its low home prices (when compared to Salt Lake Valley), friendly-as-heck people, and decent commute (only 35 minutes to Salt Lake). The mountain views are great, too! Now being so close to the race track is another added bonus for this new fan of racing.
