Wet‘n’Wild Las Vegas hosted a “Celebrity Slideboarding Competition” for charity to kick off the Memorial Day Weekend opening of the world’s first “Slideboarding” waterslide attraction (Pictured: First Place Winner Bailrok for Ronald McDonald House of Las Vegas).
Participants and other guests had the opportunity to preview (and experience) the newest attraction at Las Vegas’ favorite summer playground.
The First Place winner, Bailrok for Ronald McDonald House of Las Vegas, received a check for their charity in the amount of $1,000. Wet’n’Wild also provided a “Splash Bash,” donating 100 tickets to the charity, a free lunch for each child, and 100 tickets to a Las Vegas Outlaws football game.
The Second Place winner, Johiah Hall for Boys & Girls Club of Southern Nevada, received a “Splash Bash” party for 50 kids from his/her designated charity, free lunch, and 50 tickets to a football game.
The Third Place winner, Tracy Lee for Nevada Partnership of Homeless Youth, received a “Splash Bash” for 25 kids, free lunch, and 25 tickets to a football game.
Slideboarding, which has been implemented on the Zipp Zapp Zoom ride, integrates gaming and competitive sports into a waterslide experience that will change the waterpark industry forever. The technology employs a smart gaming system that tracks each player’s progress/scores as he or she heads down the slide. It then posts the scores on affiliated scoreboards. The system creates tailored experiences for each rider in varying degrees of difficulty based upon prior games.
