Concrete Poured at Wet 'n' Wild Water Park | Sports & Recreation
Progress is being made on the new Wet 'n' Wild in the southwest part of the Las Vegas valley.
Crews started pouring the cement for the walls of the 17,000-square foot wave pool early Thursday morning. It took 40 trucks about four hours to pour the concrete for the pool.
The developers also launched a contest Thursday to name the new wave pool. People interested in naming the pool must either like the water park's Facebook page or follow it on Twitter.
The contest winner will get a family four pack of gold passes and a VIP experience for the entire family during the opening weekend.
Wet 'n' Wild is still on track to open on Memorial Day weekend, developers said. Crews are putting in utilities along with sewer and storm drains. The lazy river has been excavated with wall formation and plumbing underway.
"This is a major water park installation, something the Las Vegas market has need desperately for quite some time," Trevor Wilson with Wet 'n' Wild of Las Vegas said.
The waterslides are being made at another location and are expected to be delivered at the beginning of the year. The foundations for many slides are already in place.
