Exclusive: First look inside the new Bass Pro Shop

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

The first video images inside of the new Bass Pro Memphis retail shop are released and we have them. The total cost of opening the doors to the new Bass Pro Memphis retail shop is right at one hundred thirteen (113) million dollars. That doesn't include the city's purchase of the Cook Convention Center or acquisition of the Lone Star property.

The city's new date to hand Bass Pro the keys to the Pyramid August of this year.

The architectural renderings show the top of the pyramid as a destination point rather than just a thing to point to.

The finished project features a glass floor, open air observation deck! Not one but two!

The south and west side decks give visitors a complete view of the Memphis skyline and the Mighty Mississippi River. Also, for the first time, video of the skyride from the floor to the top of the Pyramid. There will be indoor elevators but skyrides offer another use of the old Pyramid.

Also revealed is the observation deck level, full service restaurant, complete with an aquarium holding varieties of happy go lucky, uncaught fish from these parts you would like to see.

The other features we reported in November of 2011 are still in the works such as:

  • the indoor waterfall
  • a miniature river in floor of the building
  • indoor fishing
  • cabins
  • full firing range
  • lessons for kids

The new open date for the Bass Pro Shop Memphis is Fall of 2014.  What do you think? Tell us on our MyFoxMemphis Facebookpage: http://on.fb.me/14C7FDU
