Wet‘n’Wild offers free admission opportunities for locals -- Students, Seniors and Pass Holders benefit
Published on Wed, Jul 2, 2014 (3:23 p.m.)As a summer treat to show appreciation for local residents and pass holders, Wet‘n’Wild Las Vegas is offering several free admission opportunities to enjoy the park.
Wet‘n’Wild is rewarding Clark County students for their good work during school. Students who received straight A’s on their year-end report card just need to present it at any ticket window to receive a free general admission ticket. This offer is good for K-12 students one time during the 2014 season.
Wet‘n’Wild is also honoring local seniors, age 65 and older, with free admission during July. They just need to show their Nevada driver’s license or identification card at any ticket window.
Additionally, VIP, Gold and Season Pass holders will receive an added benefit with free admission at four other water parks: Wet‘n’Wild-branded parks in Hawaii, Phoenix and Palm Springs, Calif., and Wet‘n’Wild SplashTown near Houston, Tex. They just need to show their pass at the ticket window.
“We appreciate the community’s support and want to show our appreciation with these free admission offers,” said Takuya Ohki, general manager of Wet‘n’Wild Las Vegas. “Education and family togetherness are also important to us, so providing free park entry allows us to acknowledge all the kids who excelled in school and create a great way for families and friends and grandparents and grandchildren to share memorable experiences.
“Even if you’re not a straight A student or a senior, we’ve got another affordable way for people to come to the park,” added Ohki. “Our ‘40 Days for $40’ promotion allows guests park entry for $40 for 40 consecutive days – that’s just a $1 a day for a lot of refreshing summer fun.”
Wet‘n’Wild Las Vegas features more than 25 slides and attractions for all ages. This year new features include the Tornado extreme water slide, the world’s premier funnel slide providing a zero gravity experience; more parking, shade and lounge chairs; extended operating season and hours; and more
Dive‘n’Movies and special events, such as a concert with rising star Katy Tiz and local folk, pop and rock performer Jordan Kate Mitchell on July 5.
