Las Vegas – Wet‘n’Wild Las Vegas is sliding into March with some good news: Its third season opening will take place at the start of Spring Break – Saturday, March 28. In addition, to kick off the 2015 season, the park will host a pre-grand opening ‘Game On!’ event and Season Pass giveaway from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 21, in the front gate plaza area of the park.
The first 100 locals to arrive at the Game On! event dressed in family-friendly superhero or video game character costumes will receive a free Silver Season Pass. Other attendees also will have a chance to spin the Wet‘n’Wild Wheel for tickets, Season Passes, and other giveaways. Game On! is also aimed at introducing the nation’s first ‘Slideboarding’ waterslide experience by WhiteWater —set to open Memorial day weekend—and will offer comic book displays, game trucks, a popular food truck, a costume contest with prizes and music. Game On! event guests will also receive a special discount on Season Passes just for attending.
“This fun event will kick off the season and show our appreciation to the community,” said Takuya Ohki, general manager of Wet‘n’Wild Las Vegas. “We’ll offer a sneak peek of our upcoming, newest interactive video game attraction, Slideboarding, and provide the opportunity for residents to get into the spirit of our water park’s features. We will also be offering a special deal on Season Passes with our ‘Buy 3 Get 1 Free’ promotion. This is a great option for folks who aren’t able to make the event, but still want an awesome deal. The promotion runs through April 19.”
Slideboarding will be the first water attraction of its kind in the world, and people who are not Gold and VIP Season Pass holders will pay $5 to play for the day. This exhilarating experience with a gaming controller integrated into the waterslide experience employs a smart gaming system that tracks the player’s progress/scores down the slide and posts the scores on affiliated scoreboards.
“The Slideboarding system creates unique experiences for each rider and will forever change the water park experience,” Ohki noted.
For people who are unable to attend the event and for a limited time, the park is offering Season Pass deals for as low as $56.24 with the Buy 3 Get 1 Free promotion.
