Proposed $40 Million Western Theme Park Being Discussed in Deadwood

A group of investors is drawing up preliminary plans for the construction of a $40 million western theme park to be built in Deadwood at one of two chosen areas within the city. The Rapid City Journal reports that if the park is constructed, the group believes that it would generate millions more for the local and regional economies as well as bring another million more visitors to the Deadwood area. The group believes that if enough investors are secured and the land is purchased soon, ground could be broken as early as 2017 with a finish date by the start of tourist season in 2019.
