LAS VEGAS, Nevada – Wet ‘n’ Wild Las Vegas brings back one of the most iconic and beloved brands to Las Vegas, introducing a new era of outdoor recreation and fun for families, thrill seekers, residents and visitors. The multimillion dollar water park opened to Gold Pass holders on Saturday, adding Season Pass holders Tuesday and daily admission June 3.

During a grand opening preview Saturday, local dignitaries, park investors, employees, development team members, charitable partners, and family and friends officially welcomed the water park. Festivities included the traditional ribbon-cutting, first slide riders through an online auction benefitting the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education and Opportunity Village, guests experiencing the more than 25 slides and attractions, and fireworks.

“Las Vegas is the perfect place for us with its residential base and millions of visitors, particularly for the Wet ‘n’ Wild brand,” said Tim Fisher, CEO of Village Roadshow Theme Parks, one of the world’s leading water and theme park operators that is Wet ‘n’ Wild Las Vegas’ majority owner and oversees day-to-day operations. He noted the Bring back Wet ‘n Wild Facebook page’s 50,000 followers. A previous Wet ‘n Wild operated by another company on the Las Vegas Strip closed in 2004. “The response and support for Wet ‘n’ Wild Las Vegas has been tremendous, and bodes well for an exceptional inaugural season.”

“We’ve created a beautiful place where families can enjoy memorable experiences and help youth build character through employment,” said Roger Bulloch, investor and SPB Partners co-founder and managing principal, who with his brother and partner Scott Bulloch had the dream to build a Las Vegas water park and put the team together.

Wet ‘n’ Wild features Rattler, a first-of-its-kind slide in North America; Constrictor, a Top 5 water slide by the Travel Channel’s 2012 Extreme Water Parks program; Splash Island interactive children’s area; Colorado Cooler lazy river; Red Rock Bay Wave Pool; and other exhilarating slides. With great amenities including shaded areas, misting systems, and private cabana and Xpress Band rentals, the park is ideal for all ages to beat the heat.
