If you think about $12m and what that means to a water park it really isn't that much. Since a water park has been discussed for awhile for the Chattanooga area this is thought to something that can 'test the waters' before having something larger built. Either way, a great great get for the city of East Ridge. They definitely need the taxes.

It made it the upper 60's today here in Chattanooga, and that made me think of summertime activities. This things only about three months away, and I'm really looking forward to it. Oh, by the way groundbreaking for this project took place on February 1st, and they're still anticipating a May opening. There will be from 18 to 20 rides. Here's an article on the groundbreaking:

Delays in getting permits has postponed the opening date. The company contracted to build it went to work on another project while the permits were pending. They will begin work once the park in Florida is finished.

I went by the site a few weeks ago and saw no sign of construction. This explains why. It's disappointing about the delay. It's starting to really warm up around here, and the thought of having a waterpark nearby is really appealing. Oh well. Hopefully the extra wait will be worth it.

The developer has decided to open in 2009 now. They decided to improve the park making some of the attractions bigger, rather than open a few smaller attractions for a partial season.

Thanks for the update. While the delay is disappointing, it will be worth it as long as the finished product gets better.
