Having been in Las Vegas for the past eight-plus years, I can attest that there is a lot to discover in the city. And, while live events, five-star hotels, fine-dining, clubbing, and craziness on the Vegas Strip are year-round staples, I always thought to myself how much better diverse Las Vegas could be with more attractions geared towards the youth.

That’s why, I was pleasantly surprised to hear years back that they were planning on bringing a water park to Las Vegas called Wet’n’Wild in the summer of 2013. Located in Southwest Las Vegas at 7055 S Fort Apache Rd., the park was essentially just down the street from me and I made sure to buy my season passes ahead of time for my family.

I was definitely glad I did.

Upon entering Wet’n’Wild Las Vegas for the first time in that summer of 2013, I admit I fell in love with the park, mainly due to the vast amount of rides it offered to children while still appealing to adults. There was a wide array of slides, plenty of places to relax and soak up some sun, pools for swimmers of all ages, and concession stands with quality food.

The season passes were well used that summer, as the park closes when Fall hits.

I was interested upon hearing of some new additions to Wet’n’Wild, however, as this year they are playing host to Christmas Town, as they have turned their park into a nighttime winter wonderland featuring various forms of entertainment, such as a synthetic ice skating rink, a 40-foot Christmas tree, a 100-foot sledding hill, photo opportunities with Santa, a paintball zone, a tour of over 3 million lights, and more.

I have yet to pay a visit to Christmas Town, but have now made it a point to do just that. Until then, some simple digging online shows some of what’s going on at the park this winter. Check below for more some more pictures and stay tuned for our personal visit to the park.
