After eight years of dormancy, the Wet 'n' Wild water park in Las Vegas is looking to reopen with new slides, pools and splashes. For a city in the Nevada desert, this couldn't be a more welcome addition.
When he was a teenager, Las Vegas tennis star Andre Agassi used to cool off at the Wet ‘n Wild water park on the Strip.
And, when he was older, he took the Davis Cup tennis team there for an evening celebration after a big victory.
The park, a family attraction for locals as well as tourists, was closed in 2004 when landowners where the attraction was located made plans for a casino resort that was never built.
Now, Agassi’s children and Las Vegans young and old will get to experience a new Wet ‘n Wild in Summerlin.
