Dixie Landin' / Blue Bayou Expanding?

Dixie Landin' amusement and Blue Bayou water park, located in Baton Rouge, LA, has filed plans to expand their park and add a large campground to their property.

In a time where small parks and/or not well established parks are being picked off one by one (see Celebration City, Hard Rock Park) it's wonderfully refreshing to see a small park making plans to expand.

According to this article from WBRZ2 out of Louisiana, the park would expanding with a new roller coaster, food court, and more rides, along with more parking and the expansive campground.

The park has been making a name for itself by adding large water slides from Proslide, such as Voodoo (a large bowl slide) and Azuka (a large Tornado slide); the park also is home to the Ragin' Cajun boomerang coaster.
