100 million doesn't buy much in the way of an amusement park anymore, much less "heavily" themed. But okay, we'll see.

Isn't this the water park that purchased Kanonen? If they plan to rebuild that, it would certainly put the park on the map for enthusiasts.

The volcano in the art looks good.

I'm incredibly excited for this! It's nice to FINALLY see another theme park come to Iowa. One hundred million seems like a pretty reasonable price to me for what I'm expecting. I'm expecting maybe three roller coasters, all on the kind of cheaper end, being within about fifteen million dollars. Then I'm expecting maybe around twenty flat rides, most of them being smaller kid to family rides. I'm expecting about seventy million dollars spent on rides/shops/restaurants. The last thirty million would be spent on themeing. Building a bunch of facades isn't incredibly expensive. I wonder if Vekoma will be a big supplier for this new park. In the artwork, it looked like there was a Vekoma Waikiki Wave and there looked to be some sort of inverted coaster in the background of another piece of artwork.
