Ohio County officials promised in July 2006 that local residents soon would be able to experience a “wild escape” at The Highlands. Now, 18 months later, the proposed Wild Escape theme park seems no closer to reality than it was that summer day when officials announced the project — and judging by the process to date, that may not change anytime soon.

A hillbilly theme would be fascinating!!! lol.
I've been excited to go to this park in Wheeling for a long time now. My excitement has stopped growing.
I'd love to use the county's excuse when I apply for permits-- "I didn't hear from you for so long I assumed I could start the work." Even if they get the permits, I don't know if it's a good idea to cover up streams. There's a reason why they're there-- it's where water naturally flows to. Fighting nature is an expensive and usually a losing proposition.
On the bright side, we can try guessing what rides Minard has hidden and where they're stored.
Here is a an interview with the park owner, says he already has coasters. Very funny read in my opinion.
I particularly liked the parts where he said he comes up with the concepts for the rides, and how he "test rides" everything before he buys it. Isn't that just another way of saying he goes to parks and rides coasters? I guess we're all test riders here then.
