Here is an update and some construction pics. Hard to believe when you look at these pictures that we will be open this Summer. There is a ton of stuff going on underground. The parking lot has been completely graded as well as the wave pool, lazy river, slide splash pools and pump houses. They have also begun to carve out the area where the mat racer slide will descend below group before it makes its uphill finale.

 

All of the plumbing, electrical and foundation work is now being done on the main administration building as well as the adjoining bathhouse. The buildings should begin to go vertical soon.

 

Concrete is now being poured in the wave pool and it is rapidly beginning to take shape. Polin has manufactured 75% of the slides and there are a couple shipments in transit now. Fiberglass should begin to show up at the site mid-March. The excitement in the area is unbelievable. People drive by the site constantly honking their horns and driving by with "thumbs up." We have a deal with the local Station Casinos and one of the coolest things they are doing is coming up with a custom Cowabunga Bay slot machine!!! How cool is that?

 

Here are some pics:

Here's a POV from the deep end of the wave pool. This will soon be buried in concrete.

Yep, here comes the concrete.

This will definitely be at the top of my list for my next trip to Vegas...looks like a lot of fun and it's cool that the Station casino's have a slot machine named after the park!

 

Not being overly familiar with the Henderson area, is there a Station casino near the park? The one I am thinking of up in that area is Boulder Station...is that fairly close? Just thinking of a close place to stay that would be near the water park.

The Sunset Station is just across the freeway from the park but the Fiesta (more budget minded) and the Green Valley Ranch (top of the line) are also near by. PM me and I will give you a special Cowabunga Bay promo code for a great deal on rooms!

 

I pretty much live at the Sunset, great place with nice rooms, Starbucks, Mexican and Italian restaurants and Margaritas to die for.

Thanks Shane...I will definitely let you know when we make a visit!

 

I have stayed at the Fiesta and Texas Station on the other side of town before as they were very close to where my Great Aunt & Uncle and Aunt and Uncle used to live. I have never been to Sunset or Boulder Station, but do prefer to gamble at places like this because they cater more to the locals. Plus the rooms are very reasonable!

 

My Dad is already out there with his brother and my sister and brother in law are flying out on Thursday...I'm so jealous!
