Las Vegas, NV, USA (February 3, 2012) /PRNewswire/ — Splash Canyon Waterpark officials announced today the $20 million family waterpark in southwest Las Vegas will open spring 2013. It was expected to open Memorial Day weekend.
Opening Splash Canyon next year was a collective decision by the investor group to ensure a full first-year season for passholders, maintain a standard of quality and add more amenities.
“Lasting quality and an exceptional guest experience for years to come is more important than going too fast,” said Roger Bulloch, SPB Partners managing partner, developer of Splash Canyon. Bulloch and several long-time Las Vegas investors have committed more than $10 million of equity and already have spent more than $2 million in development costs, fees, permits and manufacturing deposits.
“Response to Splash Canyon Waterpark has been tremendous, and nobody wants to open in May more than our own families,” Bulloch said. “Moving our opening date to 2013 wasn’t an easy decision, but it was the right long-term one. Now we’ll be able to more fully enhance the guest experience, engage the community, and develop ideas, partnerships and sponsorships. We’ll also eliminate a compressed construction schedule and, most importantly, provide a complete season.”
The total development cost of the 25-acre site, including infrastructure and parking, will exceed $30 million. Waterpark staff will continue to sell partnerships, sponsorships, group events and season pass sales.
Splash Canyon is offering 2012 season passholders a full refund or half price – $49.50 per person – plus two day passes for 2013. They will receive an email with refund and conversion instructions. New 2013 season passes will go on sale in 30 to 60 days.
“Having developed more than 20 waterparks, we know there is much to do with infrastructure, planning and promotion of Splash Canyon,” said Steve Mayer, general manager of Splash Canyon and vice president of Harvest Family Entertainment, developer of the most U.S. waterparks. “Our team is eager to continue moving forward to open Splash Canyon next spring.”
Splash Canyon Waterpark was born of a public/private partnership and desire to create a place for family fun. When it opens in 2013, it will have 20 waterslides, wavepool, lazy river, mega water play structure, toddler pool, group picnic area, private cabanas, food outlets and many other amenities.
