The Park City City Council (north of Wichita) on Sunday unanimously approved a letter of intent for the development of a cowboy theme park, Wild West World, in the city. The local owners will get help from the city in expediting the development of the park.

The park sounds cool though.

Good news for the citizens, potentially bad news for Joyland ;-(

Does anyone know what design company will draw up the blueprints? Too bad Randall Duell isn't still around.

Phase 1 plans have already been done they include several flat rides by Huss and a Chance-Morgan Hyper (Chance morgen is a Wichita based coster company). I will post a artist rendering of phase one when I can find a way to load it to this site.

^How do you know it's going to be a hyper? From the artists rendering it doesn't look that big.
BTW, here is the artist rendering - http://prairierosechuckwagon.com/_borders/wildwestworld.jpg

Jr Hyper? 100-120 feet? The cost of the park was only $15-17 miilion and at least $8-10 million is needed for a jr. hyper. A normal hyper now is at least $12-15 million.

I'm with Moosh. I haven't been there, but they do have a classic woodie. Let's hope they dont go under.

I would bet that the coaster isn't over 140 ft. Because I agree with you guys, there is no way you could build a hyper 200+ ft. and have a park that only costs 17 million. Also, the flat rides aren't HUSS, there Chance.(Which just happens to be based out of Wichita.)
