The establishment is on 1600 acres of land and will hold several music festivals.

There are trails for off-road vehicles, a lake for various water activities, and a waterpark that will open in April.

Developer Ronnie Gilley says Bama Slam Saloon is a place that everyone will enjoy.

"There is no status quo if you will. We are trying to break the paralyzing change of the status quo and I think we got a project that's going to afford us that opportunity."

Gilley served nearly 6 years in Federal prison for offering bribes to legislators in the development of what was Country Crossing.
