Texas Tunnel

Recommended Posts

the extreme sports park and water park have been put on hold north of austin. (between round rock and cedar park) Not cancelled, put on hold.

I live 5min from the proposed site. Know people on community boards. That's how I hear these things.

the assertion earlier in the thread was that the waterpark and extreme sports park were the same site as the proposed wind tunnel.

On the local news last night they were once again talking about this 'extreme adventure park'
They did mention skydiving like adventure 'rides' but never stated 'wind tunnel'

Little opposition from locals and the city is pushing forward
Location mentioned
corner of FM1431 and Parmer Ln (95 acres)

Joint venture between Schiltterban water park and Volente beach club


Time will tell


The pimp hand is powdered up ... say something stupid

What area? Austin is the one I remember hearing about the 'adventure park'. Since Texas has one of if not the strongest economy and is getting better then maybe they are feeling a little better about starting. I hope so!:)
Nothing opens like a Deere!

You ignorant fool! Checks are for workers!

Schlitterbahn is moving forward with their new park just down the road from my house (near RM1431 and Parmer). I don't konw about any tunnel plans, but the water-park side of things is moving forward.

Schlitterbahn



:Dsnicker>>> Schlitterbahn



Schlitterbahn is a German word meaning "slippery road", which represents the water slides in the water parks. German immigrants were a large segment of the pioneers who settled Texas, and their influence is still seen in such names.

"gubernatorial" is also a funny word

We are installing a 10 foot wind tunnel at Skydive Temple right now.

Wind speed is about 125, so belly-flying or really slow freeflying only.

Its all here from Florida, and is being assembled right now (the rain slows things down a bit though!) Hopefully it will be open soon!

That's neat -- Is this the actual photo of it being tested in Texas?

Just got off the phone with the media guy from Schlitterbauhn. They have purchased a Skyventure tunnel for Cedar Park.

a skyventure tunnel less than 2 miles from my house.

I'm going to love it. My checkbook is going to hate it.

Cedar Park paper announced Friday Schlitterbahn's plans. In phase 1 a skydiving simulator to be open by May 2012.



Well shit, according to the Mayan calendar we'll have about 7 months to enjoy it before we all die. You can't take your money with you! Might as well blow it all when it opens.

I hope it's going to be a recirculating model. Otherwise I'll be able to hear it in operation from my front door.

I'll believe it when I see it. These guys are known in the San Antonio area (nothing to do with tunnels) to talk it up just to see what kind of interest there is.
It would be great to have and i hope it happens but it just doesn't make sense business wise. I'll bet there's a due diligence clause in the contract.
