Splash Canyon Is Now Wet ‘N Wild Las Vegas

Representatives of Australian entertainment giant Village Roadshow Ltd. announced today that it is renaming the Splash Canyon Water Park in Las Vegas to:

Wet ‘n Wild Las Vegas.

Being that Wet ‘N Wild was a fond memory to the locals of Las Vegas, the name of the new water park in Las Vegas being changed to Wet ‘N Wild is sure to resonate with many Las Vegans!

The 41-acre water park, which is currently under construction, is scheduled to open on Memorial Day 2013.

The $50 million new water park in Las Vegas will have a total of 25 slides and will also feature a wave pool, lazy river, water playground and toddler pool, as well as a seven-story speed slide and head-first mat racer.

The attraction will be on land leased from the Howard Hughes Corp., and investors will include Agassi; his wife, Steffi Graf; Dr. Steven and Karen Thomas, members of the Thomas family of Thomas & Mack Center fame; and Roger and Scott Bulloch, of SPB Capital Partners.

So, start the countdown until Wet ‘n Wild opens in Las Vegas in May 2013!

{Splash Canyon} Opening Date Changed to Spring 2013

It was just recently announced that the Water Park in Las Vegas {Splash Canyon} is going to open in Spring 2013. Opening the park one year later was a hard decision for officials to make, and the company was saddened by the change, however the entire Splash Canyon team remains committed and optimistic about the park opening next year.

Ultimately, pushing the opening back one year is going to ensure Splash Canyon to offer a full season for everyone as well as additional amenities.

“By opening in spring 2013, we’re able to do more things to enhance the waterpark experience than if we rushed this year,” Bulloch said.

Roger Bulloch is the managing partner of SPB Partners, the developer of Splash Canyon. “Now we can more fully engage the community and develop guest experience ideas, partnerships and sponsorships that fit our core values. We’ll also eliminate a compressed construction schedule and, most importantly, provide a complete season.”

Bulloch along with several long-time Las Vegas investors have committed more than $10 million of equity to the project and have already spent more than $2 million in project development costs, fees, permits and manufacturing deposits. The total development cost of the entire site, including infrastructure and parking, will exceed $30 million, with $20 million for Splash Canyon alone. Pushing the opening date back was ultimately decided upon due to the expansion of the original plans of the park. Newer plans show Splash Canyon Waterpark will cover 25 acres in its initial phase. When it opens in 2013, Splash Canyon will have 20 slides, a 17,000-square-foot wave pool, a 1,000-foot-long lazy river, mega water play structure, toddler pool, group picnic area, private cabanas, food outlets and many other amenities.

The address of the park is going to be 7055 S. Fort Apache Road site, and is located off of the 215 at Fort Apache and Sunset Road.

Splash Canyon’s Waterpark staff has said that they will continue to actively promote partnerships, sponsorships, group events and season pass sales. If you have already purchased a season pass, Splash Canyon is offering those who purchased 2012 Splash Canyon Season Passes either a full refund, or a conversion to a 2013 season pass for half price – $49.50 per person – plus two Buddy Day Passes. 2012 season passholders will receive an email with specific instructions on refunds or conversions. New 2013 season passes are expected to go on sale in 30 to 60 days, but at this time, a specific date has not been set.

It has also been noted that job applications that have already been submitted will be kept on file and new applications can still be sent to jobs@splashlv.com. Interested applicants are advised to check back at WaterParkinLasVegas.com for a list of job fairs starting next winter.

Please let us know if you have any questions in the comments section. And please note that updated pictures will be uploaded as soon as construction of the Water Park commences! Check back soon for more updates and news on the Water Park in Las Vegas {Splash Canyon}!

Making Progress!

We know that there are a lot of questions that have gone unanswered about the new water park in Las Vegas. We will release information as soon as we are able to. A lot of the developments for this project have not been made public yet. We know everyone is excited and anxious to get some details. We are anxious to get the information to you!

But, for now, here is your inside look at the latest progress being made at the Water Park in Las Vegas (as of October 23, 2011)!

A lot of grading and leveling is taking place. This part of the construction process is important, especially when you’re dealing with water areas and pools. That is why this phase is taking so long (it’s the most important).

Next up on the construction process? Utility trenching and running the utility lines. After all of the ground work is done, the “fun” stuff will begin: the layout and design of the water park and eventually, the rides!
