-Also, they said that the $70 million was to develop the first 70 acres of the park for it grand opening.

- Then over the next five years they have plans for the park, further ride additions, and 50 more acres of land to develop

- The park was to open in 2003 with 70 percent of the attractions completed, which included a wild mouse, a kiddie coaster, and a woodie(woodie steel is what they're saying).

-Recent press releases say that the a future edition is to include a steel coaster which they claim will be one of the best in the country. It will "will wind through the sky, giving riders a view of downtown Omaha", said Steve Minard

Just found this site. I live in SW Iowa. It would be nice to have a good coaster park close by. Our family is planning an August 2004 trip to Cedar Point. My 16 year old son and I can't wait to get on Top Thrill Dragster!

Coasterwiz, I also live in the Quad Cities. I didn't know there were other coasterbuzzers in the QCA. Anyways the park looks to have a good concept with a lot of potential especially since part of the park will be indoors and will be open year round.
