While that project maybe be scaled back or not happen at all I think another water park in Las Vegas is needed and would be a success.

I grew up in South Florida and we had a few small water slide/parks, and one very big water park that had a huge wave pool and many slides.

i agree, we need to have another choice besides the adventure dome for a theme park and we definitely need a water park...

We don't want to make Las Vegas a destination for kids.

That location that the developers for Wet Las Vegas bought is about right...away from the Las Vegas Strip, away from most of our local neighborhoods and easy access for the majority of customers...the folks coming into town from Cali.

No matter where another water park or similiar will be, the tourists will find it, they travel all over the valley and frequent our most local facilities/casinos/restaurants. We don't want busses bringing in people from the Strip to a park located in a "locals" area, the traffic would be horrendous. A park like that one needs to be in an open land area, with good ingress/egress, and away from our residential neighborhood areas.

Unfortunately airics, one of the down sides to living here is that we have to share everything with our guests...nothing is ever reserved for "just locals"


I never thought the plans for Wet Las Vegas had expanded to such a large undertaking...

LOL!! This is how it was when I babysat for other people's kids. Mine were always so bummed because the "others" always dug into their toys!!

I thought that the tourists wet playlands are at the hotels? I think they should stay at those. But, then again, they will need the revenue from tourists so...I guess the locals have to share.

Six Flags Atlantis was the best park ever and the bane of a chubby child's existence (stupid no shirt on slides policy). Too bad it went under but not before the end of many good summers.

I've often wondered as to why there isn't a good one out here. I figured it was the conservation efforts.
