It will be built in the new theme park, The Wonderful World of Oz. http://www.worldofoz.com/
Name is 'Flying Monkey' (I wonder why? ;)) A concept sketch can be found here as well as in the previous link. Plus the layout. What's exciting about it is that it will have a Vertical Loop followed by what looks like a Hammerhead or Cutback into a Cobra Roll with the previous loop inbetween! Also if the theming is as good as it will be, awesome! http://www.coaster-network.com/bm/bm/monkey.htm

The park is currently fighting for development if I recall. Nothing official as of yet.

Long before we begin thinking about this new B&M showing up...we need to realize that this park (Wonderful World of Oz) hasn't even made it through approvals from the county (Johnson, KS). With the absurd projections that this park is forecasting (over 3 million, in comparison Worlds of Fun draws just over a million), I don't see this park being built with the current proposals in place. This park has long been discussed, (for well over 5 years now actively) with no ground turned yet!

At this point in time, The World of Oz is not happening at the moment, apparently they had a vote late lasy year to see if it gets built, And It was something like 5-4 Against the idea. However all is not lost, they plan to have another Vote later this year, but if that fails, then it could spell the death of this theme park.
Its a shame actually as this park would have had the first Confirmed B&M for 2003, It would have been a inverted coaster with something like 6 Inversions, and the name would have been Flying Monkeys, The Park was also going to receieve a good looking Mine Train Coaster, Plus another Big Coaster probably from Arrow.
