The return of Wet'n'Wild to Las Vegas! Many folks are quite pleased about the news, and even better the plan for the park is already well underway - to the point where the park is actually already being built.
Located in Summerlin, the water park will actually be a renamed and re-branded Splash Canyon water park, which was announced some time ago. That park was slated to open this past Summer, but delays had it pegged for a 2013 opening. Now re-branded as Wet'n'Wild Las Vegas, the park will be run by Village Roadshow, a large media brand out of Australia who owns and operates several theme and water parks.
The new park will cost $50 million to construct, and feature 25 different slides when it opens next Memorial Day. Several of the slides are quite modern, including a Rattler and Constrictor, both from WhiteWater West.
Other attractions include a massive wave pool, lazy river, water play structure, and other towers including racing and high thrill plunge slides. For a full preview, check out this flyover video that the park has released.
Village Roadshow also has water parks in Arizona and Hawaii.
