The developers of the proposed Orlando Thrill Park have moved to address local residents' concerns about noise levels, claiming that the impact of the park's rides will be minimal.

Plans for the Orlando Thrill Park would see it constructed on a 78-acre plot off International Drive, around a mile away from the Universal Orlando Resort. Although it is set to feature 14 large thrill rides, a study commissioned by the developers has concluded that noise levels will not exceed 70 decibels (the same level as traffic on the road) in neighboring residential areas.

The developers have previously claimed that they will build a 650-feet buffer wall to minimize the noise impact. However, the study did concede that noise levels in the neighboring Festival Bay Mall's car park would hit 80 decibels. The mall's owners are understood to be in talks with the Orlando Thrill Park developers to reach an agreement over the issue.

A public hearing on the project is due to take place on March 15, enabling residents to voice their concerns. These have included worries over the additional traffic that the Orlando Thrill Park would attract to the already-busy International Drive, as well as the potential noise issue.

Full details of the planned line-up for the new park can be found in Theme Park Tourist's review of Orlando Thrill Park's proposed attractions.
