Today's Las Vegas is far more family-friendly than the city used to be. A fine example of this is the new addition of a 41-acre Wet 'n' Wild water park within the city limits.
Wet 'n' Wild Las Vegas opened in 2013 and has a total of 25 attractions, including two pools and 10 water slides. These slides were largely designed for adventure seekers, with names like
the Tornado and the Rattler, which may be more like a roller coaster on water than a traditional slide. There's also a kid-friendly area with less intimidating slides and wade pools.
Ticket prices are determined largely by height rather than age. Those 3'6" (42 inches) and taller pay $39.99, while those under that height pay $29.99. After 4 p.m., admission costs only $19.99, but on some nights the park is only open until 6 p.m. The park opens at 10 a.m. and closing times vary between 6 and 10 p.m. depending on the day and season. The park is located in Summerlin, off I-215.
