Creating Wet 'n' Wild Las Vegas

Before the grounds of a new water park can be covered with colorful water slides, glistening pools, and a relaxing lazy river there's a lot of dirt that has to be moved.  Such is the case with Wet 'n' Wild Las Vegas, which is making plenty of progress while digging in the dry Vegas dirt.  Seen above is a photo from a couple weeks ago that shows off just how far along the park is right now, and you can clearly make out some of the property's largest attractions.

Fast forward to now, and the park has just completed the massive concrete pour needed to fill in the bottom of their wave pool.  With all the slide parts currently being fabricated and shipped to the park, the focus now is prepping the ground and getting the basics done before things go vertical.

The park has steadily been naming some of their new attractions, such as the Hoover Half Pipe, and the set of Zip, Zap, Zoom water slides.  The wave pool, which as at many parks will be one of the star attractions, is currently the subject of a naming contest.  The person who submits the winning entry will get a pack of prizes from the park, and some pretty cool bragging rights!
