When the mercury soars to 110+ in Las Vegas, locals head for the pools. Every casino offers day passes, but the only real excitement there is people watching.
A better bet, especially if you have kids: diving into the activities at local water parks. Henderson’s own Cowabunga Bay opens next week. Cowabunga Bay has:
- 8 water slides
- 3 pools
- 1 kids’ Cove
- 3 restaurants
Cowabunga Bay’s Lazy River feature will be the largest in Nevada. As for the water slides, they scare me, which means they will be a blast for kids.
The Surf-a-rama wave pool uses one million gallons of water that generate four-foot waves. This would qualify for a red flag on any Mexican beach! Only the wave pool at Mandalay Bay is bigger.
The family that owns the water park owns the copyright to Rocky and Bullwinkle, so you are now warned.
Season passes start at $59.
BER’s hope: Cowabunga Bay has enough parking, the big headache at Wet ‘n’ Wild.
