Schlitterbahn Vacation Resort, KS

A groundbreaking ceremony for the Schlitterbahn Vacation Village in Kansas City, Kansas, was recently held to commemorate the start of construction on the project.

And what a project it is. Scheduled to open in 2009, the resort will feature a very innovative blend of accommodations, water park, resort, entertainment and shopping district, and overall vacation destination.

The $750 million project will use Schlitterbahn's Transportainment River System to move guests not only between water attractions, but also between their treehouse villas and more. The covered Riverwalk section will be themed and contain plenty of restaurant and shopping facilities.

Overall, it sounds like a winning combination. You can check out Schlitterbahn's press website for tons of concept art and press releases.
