LAS VEGAS, May 15, 2013 – Four lucky winners will be the first official riders to go down the slides at the new Wet ‘n’ Wild Las Vegas and help raise funds for local nonprofit organizations. Opening Memorial Day weekend, the new multimillion dollar water park is conducting eBay auctions for the inaugural rides on its Rattler, Constrictor, Hoover Half Pipe and Royal Flush Extreme slides – among its signature attractions. The Andre Agassi Foundation for Education will receive proceeds from the Rattle and Constrictor auctions, and Opportunity Village will benefit from the Hoover Half Pipe and Royal Flush Extreme.
The auctions began today and end at noon on Thursday, May 23. To bid or for details, click Rattler – http://ow.ly/l6EZ4, Constrictor – http://ow.ly/l6EVU, Hoover Half Pipe – http://ow.ly/l6F3f, and Royal Flush Extreme – http://ow.ly/l6ESe.Upon completion, participants will receive immediate notification about their winning bid and ride that will take place on Friday, May 24 during Wet ‘n’ Wild’s private grand opening party. The packages also include four tickets to the grand opening event with a cabana for the evening, souvenir gift bag and complimentary meal service.
Auction winners may transfer their May 24 ride to another.
“Auctioning the first official rides on the Rattler, Constrictor, Hoover Half Pipe and Royal Flush Extreme is a fun way to open Wet ‘n’ Wild Las Vegas, get people involved, and support two great local organizations that make a real difference in the community,” said Takuya Ohki, Wet ‘n’ Wild Las Vegas general manager. “We look forward to a long relationship with both the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education and OpportunityVillage.”
The Andre Agassi Foundation for Education’s mission is to transform public education through the Andre Agassi College Preparatory Academy, a tuition free public charter school, and by influencing state and national policy. Agassi is an investor in Wet ‘n’ Wild Las Vegas.
Opportunity Village serves people in the Southern Nevada community with significant intellectual and related disabilities to improve their lives and the lives of their families.
“We chose the Rattler, Constrictor, Hoover Half Pipe and Royal Flush Extreme for the auction because they are expected to be among our most anticipated and popular slides, and will help raise the most money for the two charities,” said Ohki, adding he expects sell-out days during the first weeks after the park opens. “There’s so much excitement for Wet ‘n’ Wild to open, and we look forward to entertaining everyone throughout the season.”
