Here is the latest info on the Kansas Cable Park - www.kcwatersports.com
As far as I know it is correct.
The park is scheduled to open in April of 2004. The exact date has yet to be set but April Fool's day seems fitting.
The lake is gradually filling from some of the much needed moisture. More than likely the lake will need to be topped off with water purchased from the local water district. Unlike last year, the line is in place.
Most, if not all of the info on the website is dated. Once the decision to delay the opening was made, everything was kinda put on hold.
The site still has a "work in progress" look, but things will defintely look better in April than they would have last June.
As I mentioned, the park should open to the public in April, followed by the "Grand Opening" which is currently set for the weekend before Memorial Day. My understanding is that we will host the 2004 Cable Tour National Championship on the firt weekend of August.
Our intent is to have a nice mix of sliders and kickers hopefully stuff that will appeal to riders of all levels. We recently installed support posts for what will be either some kind of unique A frame or a long flat bar. Either way it will be about 80 feet long. We are have also built a nice 40 foot rainbow. Among other things, we plan on having a 40 foot "sliding deck" similar to a fun box.(with out the upper rail.)
For those of you who are familiar with the other US parks, here is a how our facility compares to the rest. We are a 5 tower (similar to TSR and both OWC Cables). The size is larger than the small cable at OWC but not as large as the big cable. Our cable is most similar to TSR, simalar tower height but a little longer. This system was designed primarily for wakeboarding/wakeskating.
We will be updating the website before the January sports show, so please check back. We will have all of the rate information available at that time. We will be sharing a booth at the upcoming sports/boat shows with Sitzmark Sports.
