SIOUX FALLS, S.D. -

It's been a long time coming, but the new Midco Aquatic Center is now officially open to the public. It opened at 5:30 a.m. Thursday, and dozens were waiting in line to be the first inside.

Sioux Falls Mayor Mike Huether even did a cannonball off the high dive board to inaugurate the diving well at the facility.

Watch the video above to see Mayor Huether-- and KDLT's Blaise Keller-- jump from the high dive.

Admission ranges from about $5 a day to $150 for a year-long pass. The pool will be open seven days a week.
