Rose sought out a partner that could bring more than just knowledge to the project. Ari Lehman, the original Jason Voorhees in “Friday the 13th”, is Rose’s partner in the project.
“Perhaps the only fans more dedicated than ‘Friday the 13th’ fans are ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ fans,” Lehman said.
Many fans already make the road trip to the Last Chance Gas Station to see a part of Americana movie history. Now they will have more reasons to come eat, stay and play.
According to Rose’s Facebook page, the resort is expected to open sometime in July of 2016, with Ed Neal who played Nubbins Sawyer, the hitch hiker in the original movie, scheduled to appear.
