Phuket's Anthem Is No Trinity River Vision Boondoggle Cowtown Wakepark
That is not a lake in Fort Worth Texas you see in the picture, that is Anthem Lake in Phuket, Thailand.
Anthem Lake is the location of Anthem Wake Park, one of two big wakeboard park operations in Phuket, Thailand, with the other, called Phuket Wake Park, being billed as the "Biggest and Best in Asia".
I have no idea if Phuket Wake Park is actually the biggest and best in Asia, or if they hired some Trinity River Vision Boondoggle propagandists to help promote their product.
Below is a screen cap of the well done Phuket Wake Park website. Anthem Wake Park also has a well done website.
Both Phuket Wake Parks seem to be a bit more evolved than the rather primitive Fort Worth version. And bigger. With a lot more towing cables. Plus restaurants and overnight stay accommodations.
For accommodations, I don't think the Fort Worth version even has restrooms, since most Fort Worth parks don't, except for outhouses. Although I do not recollect seeing any of Fort Worth's signature outhouses among the meager Cowtown Wakepark facilities.
The Phuket Wake Parks are located on an actual island, while Fort Worth's Cowtown Wakepark is located on an imaginary island. Or is it out of the imaginary island zone? It is hard to tell where an island is when there is no island, let alone what is on or off the imaginary island.
I do not have any idea how the Phuket Wake Parks came to be. I suspect their creation had nothing to do with any slow motion river vision being directed by the unqualified son of a Thai congresswoman.
I do know that Phuket Thailand has a huge tourist industry, attracting millions of visitors annually from around the world. Real tourists, not imaginary millions of tourists like those visitors claimed by the Fort Worth propaganda machine to be visiting Fort Worth annually to enjoy, among many attractions, the world's premiere urban wakeboard experience according to Trinity River Vision Boondoggle propaganda.....
