Wet 'n' Wild Returning To Vegas With All-New $50 Million Water Park

Las Vegas — Wet 'n' Wild is returning to Las Vegas in May 2013 with a state-of-the-art $50 million water park.

The new facility located on 41 acres in southwest Las Vegas will feature more than 25 slides and attractions, including North America's first Rattler slide. The park will be managed by Village Roadshow Theme Parks, which operates Wet 'n' Wild water parks in Phoenix and Hawaii, plus another one in Sydney, Australia that is under construction and slated to open in 2013.

Wet 'n' Wild Las Vegas will offer more than 25 rides and attractions on a 41-acre property, including several tube slides, a freefall body slide, lazy river and a large wave pool.

"We are very excited to bring this amazing new water park to the perfect city that is Las Vegas," said Tim Fisher, chief executive officer of Village Roadshow Theme Parks. "The park will feature some of the world's most incredible slides and will offer an experience unlike anything Las Vegas residents and visitors have ever seen before."

Wet 'n' Wild Las Vegas attraction lineup will appeal to families and thrill seekers alike. Renderings of the park show thrilling rides like the Canyon Cliffs, which will send riders on a gut-wrenching six-story freefall at 33-feet per second. The park will also offer a multi-level, interactive children's water play structure, multiple tube slides, a giant wave pool and lazy river.

Rattler and Constrictor will be two of the attractions at the all-new $50 million Wet 'n' Wild Las Vegas water park. The Rattler will make its North America debut at this new park.

"Wet 'n' Wild Las Vegas has the potential to entertain more than 650,000 guests annually, providing them with a world class day of family fun. Together with Phoenix and Hawaii, Village Roadshow Theme Parks will soon entertain well over a million guests at our North American water parks each year," said Fisher.

The iconic Wet 'n' Wild brand has been absent from the Las Vegas area since the location The Strip closed in 2004. The new park will be located at 7055 S. Fort Apache Rd in southwest near I-215 and Sunland Road.

Land for the new park has been leased from The Howard Hughes Corporation. Investors include Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf, Dr. Steven and Karen Thomas of the Thomas and Mack family, Roger and Scott Bulloch of SPB Capital Partners, Steve Miller and Australian entertainment conglomerate Village Roadshow Limited. Village Roadshow Limited will be the majority owner with a 51% stake in the water park.
