Although they'd like to have the campground open this season they believe it will likely be next season before things will be up and running.

Back in 2020 Wild Water West had also talked of plans to add a roller coaster "unlike anything between Denver and Minneapolis".

The amusement and water park just west of Sioux Falls is asking Minnehaha County to allow a conditional use permit so the attraction can move forward.

According to information submitted to Minnehaha County in an application for a conditional use permit the enclosed footprint of the coaster would be about 275 feet long by 125 feet wide and reach a peak height of 113 feet.

It would be south of the wave pool and northwest of the go-cart track.
