Saint Louis (Mo.); Lion Country Safari; Zoos; Real estate development; Feasibility studies; Marketing research; Economic research; Tourism
In 1972, Lion Country Safari owned and operated animal parks in Florida, California, Texas, and Georgia. Encouraged by their success at these parks, they were evaluating additional markets in which to expand. One of the market areas that was under consideration was the Saint Louis area. A site west of Saint Louis was selected for a safari animal park. Economics Research Associates (ERA) was retained to evaluate the potential market support, and based on projected attendance, to determine the financial feasibility for such a park. The report has the following sections: 1) introduction, 2) summary of major conclusions, 3) site analysis, 4) market analysis and attendance projections, and 5) financial analysis. The report includes 16 tables.
