HENDERSON, Nev. — Las Vegas valley residents looking for something fun to do over the holiday weekend may want to try a water park that is the first of its kind in the area. Aqua Park is a floating water park.
“I saw it on Instagram, and I was like ‘we should go,'” said Emma Rojas, sister.
Emma’s mom Katherine Rojas wanted to find something her entire family could enjoy.
“I’m really fortunate because some of my kids are adopted, and they’ve always worked well but this, I think they’ve come to me twice and said ‘good job mom; good pick mom, good pick,’ so I did good on this,” Katherine said. “It’s always good when you know you’ve hit the mark on the fun activity.”
Josh Metz with Lake Las Vegas Water Sports has been working on bringing the floating obstacle course to the lake for a while now.
“This was kind of the one thing we feel like we were missing; it’s here,” Metz said! “I’ve seen everyone from a young kid to the old dad just getting raced around by his young son and trying to keep up. It’s awesome.”
“We thought today was good; imagine [what it’s] like when it’s hot,” Emma said.
