New extreme water slide opening this weekend at Wet 'n' Wild

By Krista Hostetler. CREATED May 23, 2014

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The new Tornado extreme funnel water slide opens on Saturday, May 24 at Wet 'n' Wild Las Vegas.

The slide sends a four-person raft down a tunnel, before dropping into the calm waters below.

Lifeguards and other staff from Wet 'n' Wild took on roles Friday as "splash test dummies" to try out the new Tornado slide.

"Through the tube, down a 36 foot drop, into a 40 foot funnel. You oscillate back and forth, get some awesome wall time and then come down to calmer waters below," said Trevor Wilson with Wet 'n' Wild.

VIP pass holders can begin riding the new slide starting at 8 a.m. on Saturday.
