New waterpark planned for Kansas

BY Jessica Tasman-Jones

US developer Wisconsin Resorts Consulting has revealed plans to build a 100,000sq ft (9,290sq m) water park and hotel resort in Kansas's Caban Marketplace development in Bel Aire.

The company confirms the US$85m (63.58m euro, £55.57m) project will cover 27 acres and include indoor and outdoor waterpark space, 400-room hotel, action sport activities, retail, and banquet and dining facilities.

The development is pending sales tax revenue (STAR) bonding approval from the State of Kansas but the company says it is confident this will go through.

Local media have this month reported a 100,000sq ft (9,290sq m) aquarium is planned for the Caban Marketplace, and a sports training academy has already been earmarked for the destination development.

STAR bonds are available to entertainment and tourist attractions that will attract more than 20 per cent of visitors from out of state.
