Las Vegas, NV -
MGM Resorts International has made plans to build a water park in the Las Vegas Stip next to the Circus Circus hotel-casino. According to a story by vegasinc.com
, if the water park is built it will be the third water park planned for Las Vegas. MGM will be asking the county for permission to to reclassify 23 acres of land near the KOA campground at Circus Circus. MGM hopes to build the water park there on 5.5 acres of land, north of the Adventuredome.
Greg Borgel, who will be representing MGM’s plan during the approval process, shared the blueprints at a board meeting. The water park is said to have a children’s play pool that will include a 21 foot play structure, two water slides that will be 65 and 90 feet tall and surround more than 200 trees, and a river channel that will most likely become a lazy river. The water park is also planned to have cabanas, two snack shacks, and a retail center. No coast was estimated for the project and no time was proposed either, but Borgel said it could be about 18 months.
The plan will be presented to the Clark County Commission on January 9th for approval. “(I don’t foresee) any issues,” Borgel said. “It’s an amenity the community should like, so I don’t predict any complications.” “This is a very exciting project,” board member Judith Perez said during the presentation. “It’s something that needs to happen.”
