The operators of Wet ‘n’ Wild Las Vegas have named five finalists in a contest to name a wave pool at the 41-acre water park that is under construction, and the early leader has a distinct UNLV flavor.

Voting on the park’s Facebook page will continue through midnight Saturday. The name with the most “likes” when the voting ends will win.

The leader early Tuesday was The Ragin’ Rebel, submitted by Jackie Galaza. That name was followed by Red Rock Bay, submitted by Ted Stringer, Neon Beach by Robyn Young, Mojave Monsoon by Scott Berard and Cactus Curl by Dean Lamanna.

The winning entrant will receive a four-pack of Gold Passes and a family VIP experience during the scheduled Memorial Day opening weekend, including a complimentary cabana, all-you-can-drink soda and food. Each of the five finalists will receive a pair of single-day admission tickets to the park.

More than 1,400 names have been submitted in the contest.

Participants can only vote once and must be fans of the Wet ‘n’ Wild Facebook page.

The water park is under construction at 7055 S. Fort Apache Road, near the 215 Beltway and Sunset Road.
