DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - Two amusement park-style rides are coming to Daytona Beach's oceanfront.
An attorney for the ride owner promised it will revive the struggling area around the vacant lot.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports the rides could be running by next year.
Commissioners debated whether approving the plan would affect future projects in the area. But Mayor Derrick Henry offered support for the plan, saying if the future market demands something else in that location, it could still happen.
The rides will be operated by Funtime Industries, which already runs a slingshot ride on the Boardwalk and in other Florida cities.
