About Wet‘n’Wild Las Vegas
One of the world’s most iconic water park brands, Wet‘n’Wild Las Vegas opened for its second season in April with expanded hours, a longer operating season, a new slide to open Memorial Day weekend and other improvements. It is Nevada’s premier water park with more than 25 slides and attractions, and a place for both thrill seekers and families. For the more daring, the multimillion dollar park features the new Tornado, the world’s premier funnel slide that catapults riders through a swirling 45-foot-wide funnel; Rattler, the first slide of its kind in North America, and Constrictor, an extreme water slide featuring some of the tightest turns. Families and those desiring a more relaxing experience enjoy Splash Island, the interactive children’s area with kid friendly slides and a giant dumping bucket; Colorado Cooler lazy river; and Red Rock Bay wave pool. With great amenities including shaded areas, private cabanas and misting, Wet’n’Wild is ideally located off I-215, at Sunset Road and Ft. Apache Road. The park is a partnership between Village Roadshow Theme Parks, the majority owner and overseer of day-to-day operations, and Las Vegas investors through SPB Partners, one of Nevada’s first private equity funds.
