In Case You Were Wondering Summer Fun Cowabunga Bay

According to Eli Segall from VegasInc The opening of Cowabunga Bay Water Park has been delayed again, and while management says it will be only a few weeks late, officials couldn’t say when the park will open.
The 23-acre Henderson attraction will miss its planned Memorial Day weekend opening, General Manager Shane Huish said today.
The park is running only a week two behind schedule, Huish said, but could not provide an exact opening date. Management will set one when they know for sure the park is a few weeks from being ready, he said.Huish attributed the delay to the project’s size, saying there are “always things that come up.” He said strong winds have also slowed construction.“Every day that we’re not open, it really affects us,” he said.Because of the delay, season-pass holders will get access to Cowabunga Bay for some extra days this fall, Huish said.They also will get to choose one of several options when they pick up their passes: a 10 percent refund off their purchase price, $10 in “Cowabunga Cash” to buy food at the park, a free bring-a-friend pass, or if they don’t want to go to the park at all, a full refund.The 1960s beach-themed water park at Gibson Road and Galleria Drive was supposed to open by Memorial Day weekend 2013, but Huish said last April that Cowabunga Bay was only half built and would open in spring 2014 instead.He said work crews ran into caliche — a concrete-like mix of hardened calcium carbonate, gravel, sand, clay and silt — 15 feet below the ground. He also cited a delay in importing a custom-made water slide from Europe.In August, Huish sold the site for $2.3 million to Tom Welch, of Utah. Huish’s group had acquired the property for $4.6 million less than a year earlier.At the time, Huish said the sale put the partially built water park “in a very good position” to meet its then-planned April 2014 opening date.As of last year, the park was expected to include a 33,000-square-foot wave pool, several clusters of slides, a lazy river and a multi-lane racing slide that would send riders on a 55-foot head-first plunge into a pool.

Get ready to cool off!  Now that “Wet & Wild” has competition, there should be fewer lines to contend with!
