Slides, attractions


and suppliers Spread over a 23-acre site in Henderson, Nevada, Cowabunga Bay Las Vegas features more than 25 water slides, a lazy river, wave pool and a retro 1960s inspired look. The slides, supplied by Polin Waterparks & Pool Systems, include a Space Shuttle, Space Bowl, Surf Safari, Black Hole, Rocket Slide, family raft slide, open flume slide and 6-lane mat racer.


A children’s play structure was provided by Fibrart. The wave pool and lazy river were designed and built by the Aquatic Development Group. The conveyor system was provided by Vanstone. Other pools and water elements were designed and built by CEM Aquatics of Salt Lake City, Utah. All


themed designs, concepts and graphics were prepared in- house, with Themendous of New Jersey fabricating the sculpted theme elements and a local company


supplying the signage.


How was business last season? We had an awesome first season. The response to the park has been overwhelming. We had a great staff, and the guests responded well to the family- friendly theme of the park. 2015 pre season pass sales are exceeding our expectations, so it looks like it will be a very promising upcoming season.


How fiercely did you have to compete on price against Wet ’n’ Wild?


Our park offers a different experience than the other park and we base our prices on that experience. We do have a different price structure and we each have different marketing strategies. Our strategy seems to be working very well for us which allows us to maintain our projected per caps.


What are your plans for 2015? We are opening two new four-person family raft rides from Polin. One is the Surf Safari model. It is the first of its kind in North America and will be the world's largest manmade wave


Are there are changes/improvements you will make to the park in Utah as a result of your experiences in Vegas? For the past couple of years we have had our focus on the Las Vegas project. Our Utah park has continually increased in attendance and per cap for the past six years. We are now looking to do some expansion there in the next year or two.
