Wet 'n' Wild offers a playful, off-Strip experience for families and thrill seekers alike. The water-themed amusement park offers more than 25 slides and attractions, and is located on 33.5 acres about 25 minutes off the Las Vegas Strip.
For young kids -- or those looking to take it easy -- the relaxing 1,000-foot winding Lazy River is a sure bet to beat the heat. Other tame attractions include the multilevel Splash Island with five interactive fun zones, nine slides and a giant bucket that spills 300 gallons of water on guests below; and the 400,000-gallon Red Rock Bay pool.
Adrenaline addicts will also find plenty to enjoy, including the Rattler, a three-person ride down more than 360 feet of fun, twists and turns. Then there’s the Royal Flush Extreme, a ride that takes you through an enclosed tube before being dropped into a giant bowl.
