(8:41 am EST) -- A new amusement park is set to open in Foley, Alabama, less than 30 minutes from the Gulf Shores.

Called OWA, the lakeside theme park will feature 21 rides, including the Rolling Thunder Coaster, with a 110-foot vertical lift, four inversions, dive loop, corkscrew and heart-line roll.

Other attractions will include thrill rides, kiddie rides, and rides for the whole family to enjoy together.

Families who visit OWA will also be able to enjoy midway games, dining options, and shopping.

The park will open on July 21; tickets will go on sale on July 18.
