Wet 'n' Wild Coming Back to Las Vegas

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.
