Wet’n’Wild Las Vegas
The Mojave Desert is a harsh and very hot place. However, this fact didn’t stop the Americans from building the most cheerful water park called Wet’n’Wild Las Vegas. It helps everyone to relax and refresh after the burning sun, enjoying a huge number of various water slides and rides. All this is located on the outskirts of Las Vegas since it was originally planned that the park will be visited only by locals.
In order to get to the water park you need to drive past the airport runway, through neat streets with modest houses in which local people live, through desert plains, and only then you will find yourself in the realm of water fun.
The creators did their best to analyze the most popular slides in the world and gathered them in one place, so now Wet’n’Wild is perhaps one of the most interesting and outstanding water parks on the planet. High speeds, weightlessness, giant waves, water funnels – everything is there for fun.
