Posted Thursday, February 8, 2007 9:38 AM | Contributed by Jeff

With significant economic development hopes riding on the frontier veneer of Wild West World, owner Thomas Etheredge excitedly announced this week he's 95 percent done with construction. In fact, the $30 million, 130-acre theme park in Park City has stayed about 30 days ahead of schedule for months now, and Etheredge says his May 5 grand opening is on track.

crazy horse's avatar I plan on doing worlds of fun and six flags this summer. I am also going to be making a side trip to this park as well.

Be sure to support your friends over at Joyland as well. I hope Nightmare finally opens this season.

crazy horse's avatar Speaking of nightmare,

Any news about the ride? I wonder if its going to remain a indoor coaster?

DantheCoasterman's avatar This park reminds me of Beech Bend when it first opened, and look at it now! Some nice family and thrill rides plus a really fun GCI coaster to top it off. Plus, the park is growing with each year. If Wild West World follows Beech Bend I'll be really excited.
