Las Vegas WET


Las Vegas WET

Overview

Las Vegas WET is a mixed use entertainment venue scheduled to be built in Las Vegas.

WET Holdings was founded in 2006 to develop a 200+ acre entertainment destination resort in Las Vegas, Nevada called Las Vegas WET. WET Holdings is privately held by a group of theme park, gaming, and hospitality veterans. The project is lead by Steven Dooner, WET Holdings CEO/Founder and 30 year theme park veteran with the likes of Disney and Universal Studios Theme Parks.

Las Vegas WET is a proposed new 200-300+ acre destination adventure park in Las Vegas, Nevada. It will be one of the largest amusement and entertainment complexes in North America featuring indoor and outdoor water rides, surfing, arenas, snowboarding and skiing (indoors yearround), retail, and attractions, all linked to six major hotels with gaming and Vegas-style dining and entertainment venues.

WET will also be a fuel-cell powered installation. Generating its own clean power and treating its own water, WET is seeking to have a neutral carbon footprint and be an almost closed ecological system. The design team is making the project as environmentally friendly as possible. The plan is to use solar panels wherever possible to generate electricity and microturbines to heat and cool the buildings and water.

It is scheduled to open late 2011/early 2012. The company is currently private, but may be public in the future.

Latest news (3/14/08, courtesy of Steve Dooner himself):"We will soon be announcing the location of the 200+ acres we're acquiring on the South Strip. The project has expanded significantly, and a new partner will be announced soon as well. We are now up to 6 hotel casinos on the project, with over 10,000 rooms if built as currently planned."
