Cowabunga Bay will be the second water park to open in Clark County within the last 14 months. Southern Nevada first saw the opening of 41-acre Wet 'n' Wild last May, and this year the 23-acre Cowabunga Bay is expected to open on Independence Day with 400 employees in tow.
Originally slated to launch on May 24, a "perfect storm of issues" delayed Cowabunga Bay's opening. Although the $25 million family attraction did not open at its original set date, the owner has provided season pass holders with a pro-rated discount or full refund if requested, as well as other in-park discounts and bring-a-friend tickets.
Cowabunga Bay's water park will operate on 12 acres of the site, using 1.5 million gallons of heated water recycled through the park. Its lazy river will be the largest in Nevada, and its wave pool will be second in size to Mandalay Bay. There will also be eight water slides, three pools, a kids cove, rental cabanas with their own pool area, and three in-park eateries.
