Families — adults and children — across the Valley are waiting with bated breath for the opening of Wet ’n’ Wild Las Vegas water park, and the wait ends this Memorial Day Weekend. Well, for some lucky folks.

VIP patrons with the right connections, money and/or luck will be the first to slip and slide at Wet ’n’ Wild beginning Saturday, but Wet ’n’ Wild opens to single-day ticketholders beginning June 3; check out Ed Komenda’s latest report in this Las Vegas Sun/Vegas Inc. story.

Meantime, enjoy contributing photographer Tom Donoghue’s photo gallery of Wet ’n Wild from the air and at water-park level shot Tuesday and today, respectively.
