“People are in a fun mood when they’re down there and there’s a lack of quality family entertainment on the water,” said Todd Schneider, managing partner of SkyView. “We worked down there for seven years trying to find something that had, you know, the right access, the right visibility, and the key would be something that was accessible by boat and road.”

An entertainment district is slated to be developed along the Lakeport property at Highway 54 and Jeffries Road, near the Grand Glaize Bridge.

Schneider said they are looking at opening this place for families.

“The Oasis at Lakeport will be an offering unlike any other in the region,” he said.

Admission will be completely free at Oasis in Lakeport.

“One thing to note about this, we’re not going to charge admission,” Schneider said. “So unlike a traditional amusement park where you park and go up to the gate and pay $100 to get in.”

People will only spend money if they feel inclined to.

“The hotel, parking garage, marina, boardwalk, platform and a number of entertainment options are central to the 200-foot-tall observation wheel, the Ferris wheel’s current observation wheel,” Schneider said.

Year-round entertainment district plans include amusement rides, hotels, restaurants, amphitheater, marina and boardwalk. In addition, the gondola is climate controlled, heated and cooled throughout the year.

Lt. Gov. Mike Kehoe said the project will have an impact on Missouri’s economy.

“Oasis in Lakeport will generate more than 500 jobs and bring 500,000 visitors to Missouri, further enhancing tourism, one of Missouri’s key industries,” Kehoe said in a news release.

Ground breaking is expected to begin in 2023 and the tourist attraction is scheduled to open in 2024.
