Cool, thanks for posting! I just asked about this a few weeks ago.

I heard rumors about it not being a full sized cable park, whatever that means. I don't know how big the other ones are because I've never been to a cable park.

We could sooo use this. The lakes are way too crowded. <BR> <BR>"I don't believe in giving up green space used by the community for recreation purposes for projects like this." <BR> <BR>^This is B.S., you maybe get a head count in the low 100's on a good day for a golf course/softball field versus a few thousand at a waterpark.

The company my brother works for has appraised this property three times, once for the city and twice for the developer. He says that there is no way in this will ever get built.

cable park, not waterpark. a few thousand would not happen or what would be point? you would get one hfall, then b done for the day. i never saw more then 60 or 70 people at a cable park at one time and worked @tsr all last summer. throughout a full day u may have 2 to 3hundred come through on a really good day

It's supposedly supposed to be much more than a cable park. Artificial surf waves (flowrider style), rafting, kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, canyoneering, rock climbing, and wakeboarding.

its still in the works, but there is no definate status as of now. This is according to the contractor that has been selected to build the project

wakeboardsam 07-20-2009 5:01 PM

It's done... wrong time in history... it could have been built about three years ago, but not any time in the next five years. The commercial/residential/resort real estate industry will not facilitate this project.

+1 ^^^^^^^ For sure Sam. It's really too bad, but that looks like the most likely scenario.

We should rename this the Arizona Graveyard because the fact that they need at least $250 million in this economic climite is highly unlikely especially since it sounds closer to $750 million being the real cost a this point. I was pumped on this project for sure and sad to see it go.

amo 07-21-2009 1:01 PM

Maybe they should just put in the cable park and nothing else.

rkinsell 07-21-2009 1:03 PM

AZ republic just had an article on the front page yesterday about it

I'm guessing thats the same as azcentral.com?
