Kinmundy Board Gives American Obstacle Full Lake Permission
Clough says some of the improvements will be available next year.
"The first thing we're planning on doing is putting ziplines across the lake, that should be ready for 2014."
Clough says a number of buildings will follow.
"We're planning on putting in a 350 person reception hall first. The second building we want to put in is a treetop restaurant, and then we'd like to put in storefronts, so that people who don't want to zipline can do a little shopping." Clough said.
Clough says the restaurant will be unique, "The cooking will be on ground level, but people will be able to walk up a staircase to the dining area in the canopy overlooking the lake."
American Obstacle attracted 2,000 visitors last year, a number Kurt Clough hopes will grow to 20,000 a year with completion of the full project.
The Clough's will further explain the project at a Town Meeting at seven Thursday night at Kinmundy City Hall. Everyone is invited to attend.
