Wet 'n' Wild Las Vegas introduces new extreme slide

 

Wet 'n' Wild Las Vegas is bringing the world's premier funnel water slide to Las Vegas and Nevada with the acclaimed TORNADO by ProSlide Technology.

 

The award-winning extreme water slide simulates a natural storm experience and will join the water park's more than 25 slides and attractions in providing outdoor water fun and lasting memories for families and thrill seekers. While the park opens April 12 for Spring Break, the Wet 'n' Wild Tornado will launch during the official start to summer, Memorial Day weekend.


The Tornado is a four-person raft attraction that catapults riders from 36 feet in the air through a 110-foot tunnel before dropping into the 45-foot-wide funnel where they spin back and forth through swirling water before plummeting into the eye of the storm. As the raft sweeps up the Tornado wall and crosses its centerline, guests experience weightlessness.


"The Tornado is an exciting new shared extreme slide experience for our guests and a 'must-have' slide that's a favorite among water park attendees," said Tim Fisher, CEO of Village Roadshow Theme Parks, one of the world's leading water and theme park operators and Wet 'n' Wild Las Vegas' majority owner and day-to-day operations manager.


Canadian-based ProSlide Technology is a leading developer of innovative water rides and winner of many industry awards, more than other manufacturers combined.


"Finally Nevada thrill seekers can enjoy the most popular iconic water ride in the world at Wet 'n' Wild Las Vegas," said Rick Hunter, ProSlide president and CEO. "The ProSlide TORNADO is the only ride anywhere with a true funnel shape. With its perfectly round opening and curved walls, this patented shape generates an unbeatable excitement level with a big drop into the massive funnel and zero-g sensations."


Other 2014 Wet 'n' Wild additions include more operating days, late night hours, shade areas, parking, lounge chairs, heated water in the children's area, and VIP pass and early entry options, among other park improvements.
