Wild Island Breaks Ground on New Attraction for Summer 2012


The first day of summer isn’t until June 20, 2012, but that isn’t stopping Wild Island Family Adventure Park from gearing up for the opening of the 2012 summer vacation season by breaking ground on a new attraction at its water park –  the only water park in Nevada.  Construction is underway on “Zulu,” a water slide that allows up to four people to race against each other on mats.  The ride has been in the works for more than 18 months and is the  first ride at Wild Island to accommodate groups of people at once, so a family or friends can experience the ride together.  Below is a news release with more details or click here.

The investment comes despite the continued sluggish economy, as Wild Island looks to continue to freshen up its product and stay current with a quality entertainment product for locals and visitors.  Zulu is expected to open on or around Memorial Day.

Please contact me if I might arrange at time for you to meet with Scott Carothers, general manager at Wild Island, about the new attraction and how one local business is re-investing in its product so guests get the greatest ROI for their discretionary dollar (that’s tighter and tighter these days).  Local construction crews will be working all week.
