Water Slides Installed at New Water Park | News
Construction crews started installing one of the biggest attractions of the new water park being built in the southwest part of the Las Vegas valley.
The fiberglass for Canyon Cliff slides at Wet 'n' Wild were attached to the metal tower Wednesday. The slides will stand four stories high. During the ride, the guests will be loaded into capsules then dropped in a free fall that will have them racing at 33 feet per second.
The Canyon Cliff slides are just one of several attractions at the park that will include a wave pool, a lazy river and nine more slides in a splash zone.
"We are very excited to bring this project back for the families. We get overwhelming response from the community. They all want to see this project happen," general manager Takuya Ohki said. "I sometimes wear a Wet 'n' Wild logo shirt and sometimes I go to a restaurant for lunch and everybody comes up to me and says, 'when is going to open?'"
Ohki said crews are working seven days a week to make sure the park is open for Memorial Day.
