The $15 million-to-$17 million park is scheduled to open May 5, 2007. It will feature 25 western-themed rides and a 1,300-seat theater. Etheredge owns the Prairie Rose Chuckwagon Supper in Benton.
Over the next year, workers will install the park's storm drains, water and sewer lines, and build a parking lot. Work will begin on a new Sleep Inn motel, Papa John's restaurant and convenience store. Other stores and restaurants will be announced later.
