Plans for RMC Raptor at Wild Water West in South Dakota for 2021

Thanks Pear!
There is a design online. It’s called a Raptor, and even has roller coaster-lovers buzzing about it on an online message board.
They found us! 😀

Really though almost seems like they applied for the permit on a whim, to see if they were likely to get approval for a new coaster or not. Certainly doesn’t sound like they’ve actually ordered a Raptor sadly.

I sent 'em a congrats email and got this back right away- this is huge news for us who have to drive or fly quite a ways for a "big boy" park:

Good Afternoon Robert,

Thank you so much for the feedback and we are happy that people are excited! We are still working through other details including the contract terms and how the coronavirus may impact travel and business, so I can’t say we are 100% done just yet. But we will definitely let everyone know if this deal goes through and we will be excited to show it off to the greater Midwest!
