EAGLE MOUNTAIN -- A Utah entrepreneur's plans for a wakeboarding park are getting preliminary approval from Eagle Mountain city leaders.
The City Council approved a site plan earlier this month for an attraction akin to an aquatic skateboard park.
The site would feature two lakes and a cable system to pull wakeboarders through the water. Builders say the cable system lifts the wakeboarders rather than dragging them as a boat does.
The attraction would also feature ramps and rails.
Professional wakeboarder Pat Panakos and his business partner Darcy Hanks are spearheading the effort.
A city spokeswoman tells The Salt Lake Tribune no date has been set to bring the project up for further approval.
