Joan Jett & The Blackhearts
Joan Jett is an originator, an innovator, and a visionary. As the leader of the hard-rocking Blackhearts, with whom she has become a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, she’s had eight platinum and gold albums and nine Top 40 singles, including the classics “Bad Reputation,” “I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll,” “I Hate Myself For Loving You,” and “Crimson and Clover.” She sits at the head of her own independent label, Blackheart Records. Since co-founding the Runaways, the pioneering all-girl punk quintet, at age 15, Jett’s determination and drive have kept her in the public eye. Her music has become a permanent force in mainstream culture. Jett & The Blackhearts released their latest record, Unvarnished, last year and continue touring the globe to throngs of adoring fans.
 
3 Doors Down
Formed in 1995, Grammy Award®-nominated multiplatinum Mississippi rock band 3 Doors Down consistently captivates audiences worldwide. The quintet’s many accolades include selling 16 million albums globally, receiving three Grammy nominations, and winning two American Music Awards. Their debut The Better Life, became certified six-times RIAA platinum in 2000 and was fueled by the success of juggernaut hit “Kryptonite.” This was followed by 2002’s sophomore album, Away from the Sun which went triple-platinum and saw similar success with “When I’m Gone” and “Here Without You.” 2005’s platinum Seventeen Days and 2008’s 3 Doors Down each earned #1 debuts on the Billboard Top 200, while Time of My Life landed at #3 in 2011. Ignited by the single “In The Dark,” 3 Doors Down unleashes their sixth full-length album, Us and the Night, in 2016.
 
Cherry Poppin’ Daddies
Cherry Poppin’ Daddies became a popular act during the swing revival of the late 1990s although the eight-piece band had formed one decade prior in Eugene, Oregon. The current lineup includes original members Steve Perry (who once performed under the mad scientist stage persona of “MC Large Drink”) on lead vocals, bassist Dan Schmid and trumpeter Dana Heitman. The Cherry Poppin’ Daddies broke into the musical mainstream with their 1997 swing compilation Zoot Suit Riot: The Swingin’ Hits of the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies. Released at the onset of the late 1990s swing revival, the album went on to sell over two million copies in the United States while its eponymous single became a radio hit. The Daddies have been playing songs on tour from their newest release called The Boop-A-Doo. Cherry Poppin’ Daddies has always prided itself on its craft and musicianship that have allowed them to excel in whatever format they choose to tackle.
 
Robby Krieger of The Doors
Born in Los Angeles, California, Robby Krieger played in bands with friends where he eventually came into contact with drummer John Densmore. The two began jamming on blues together, later on meeting keyboardist Ray Manzarek and poet/singer Jim Morrison, resulting in the birth of The Doors. Quickly building a name for themselves in L.A. with their unpredictable live shows, The Doors were signed to Elektra Records, and issued their debut album, the Doors, in 1967. The album would become one of rock’s all-time classics, as it spawned the monster hit “Light My Fire,” a tune penned entirely by Krieger. Subsequent studio releases — 1967′s Strange Days, 1968′s Waiting for the Sun, and 1969′s the Soft Parade — all included several classic songs, and by the dawn of the ’70s, the band issued a pair of strong releases, 1970′s Morrison Hotel and 1971′s L.A. Woman. Krieger would go on to issue solo albums in addition to playing live dates, and guest appearances on albums by other artists. In the early 21st century, Krieger and Minaret resuscitated The Doors (with the Cult’s Ian Asbury taking Morrison’s position, and the Police’s Stewart Copeland initially taking Dunmore’s spot) for live shows and recordings. Robby is currently playing Doors songs with his Robby Krieger Band and special guest vocalist Waylon Krieger.
 
Vertical Horizon
Vertical Horizon was founded in the early 1990s, but it was seven years before lead singer Matt Scannell’s songs became the radio hits that brought the popular grass roots band to national attention.  In 1999, they released their breakout album, Everything You Want, which went on to sell more than two million copies. The single  “Everything You Want,” captured the #1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 and Adult Top 40 charts, and became Billboard’s Most Played Single of 2000. The band garnered further radio attention with “You’re a God” and “Best I Ever Had (Grey Sky Morning),” which in 2005 became a top 20 country hit for Gary Allan. Subsequent records followed included Go in 2003, Burning the Days in 2009 and their latest record, Echoes From The Underground, was released in 2013. Vertical Horizon tours extensively and in between tours Matt spends the majority of his time writing. 
 
Melissa Etheridge
Melissa Etheridge stormed onto the American rock scene in 1988 with the release of her critically acclaimed self-titled debut album, which led to an appearance on the 1989 Grammy Awards show. For several years, her popularity grew around such memorable originals as “Bring Me Some Water,” “No Souvenirs” and “Ain’t It Heavy,” for which she won a Grammy® in 1992. Etheridge hit her commercial and artistic stride with her fourth album, Yes I Am. The collection featured the massive hits, “I’m the Only One” and “Come to My Window,” a searing song of longing that brought Etheridge her second Grammy® Award for Best Female Rock Performance. In 1995, Etheridge issued her highest charting album, Your Little Secret, which was distinguished by the hit single, “I Want to Come Over.” Her astounding success that year led to Etheridge receiving the Songwriter of the Year honor at the ASCAP Pop Awards in 1996. Known for her confessional lyrics and raspy, smoky vocals, Etheridge has remained one of America’s favorite female singer-songwriters for more than two decades. In February 2007, Melissa Etheridge celebrated a career milestone with a victory in the “Best Song” category at the Academy® Awards for “I Need to Wake Up,” written for the Al Gore documentary on global warming, An Inconvenient Truth. Most recently, she released her latest album This Is M.E. in September 2014, which features singles Take My Number, A Little Bit of Me, and Monster.
 
Smash Mouth
Formed in late 1994, Smash Mouth began recording demos and showcasing in both San Jose and Hollywood, Calif. In June 1997, Smash Mouth signed to Interscope Records when label brass caught wind of an unknown (and unsigned) band being added to L.A. radio station KROQ’s playlist after only one spin of their song “Walkin’ on the Sun.” Smash Mouth’s major-label debut Fush Yu Mang goes more than double platinum and sets the table for what most consider their masterpiece, the brilliant follow-up album Astrolounge. Boasting three top-ten hits (“All-Star,” “Then the Morning Comes,” and “Can’t Get Enough Of You Baby”), sales for Astrolounge are nearly double than their debut album, approaching quadruple platinum status. Smash Mouth’s third eponymous Interscope release features the ecstatic first single “Pacific Coast Party” and the smash hit “I’m a Believer” which was featured on the Shrek soundtrack. The band most recently released the album Magic and continue has focused on touring and entertaining troops in Japan, Guam, Guantanamo Bay, Afghanistan, and Iraq.

KC and The Sunshine Band
KC and The Sunshine Band are still as widely popular today as they were when they first danced into the music scene 40 years ago. Harry Wayne Casey – KC for short – developed a unique fusion of R&B and funk, with a hint of a Latin percussion groove, giving us an impressive string of hits like “Get Down Tonight,” “That’s The Way (I Like It)” and “Shake Your Booty.” With sales of over 100 million records, nine Grammy nominations, three Grammy Awards and an American Music Award, KC and The Sunshine Band was one of the most progressive bands of the ’70s and is credited with changing the sound of modern pop music.

Martha Davis and The Motels, The Tubes & The Smithereens
You’d be hard-pressed to find any compilation of ’80s hits that doesn’t include songs by these popular groups. Some favorites include “Only the Lonely” from Martha Davis and The Motels, “Talk to Ya Later” from The Tubes, featuring Fee Waybill, and “A Girl Like You” from The Smithereens.

Smash Mouth & Toad the Wet Sprocket
American rock band Smash Mouth is perhaps best known for their hits, “Walkin’ in the Sun” and “All Star,” featured in numerous movie soundtracks. Alt Rock’s Toad the Wet Sprocket have a string of chart-topping hits including, “Walk on the Ocean,” “Something’s Always Wrong” and “All I Want.”

Theory of a Deadman
Canadian rockers Theory of a Deadman formed in 2001 and have had seven Top 10 hits. Their biggest radio success came from 2008’s Scars & Souvenirs. Their hits include “So Happy,” “Bad Girlfriend” and “Not Meant to Be.”

Spin Doctors and Cherry Poppin’ Daddies
Spin Doctors are best known for two hits with irresistible melodies, “Two Princes” and “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong.” Cherry Poppin’ Daddies rose to the forefront of the neo-swing movement with their two million-selling “Zoot Suit Riot.”

Kansas & Blue Oyster Cult
Kansas has scored eight gold albums, three sextuple-platinum albums and a platinum live album as well hits like “Carry On Wayward Son” and the timeless “Dust in the Wind.” Blue Oyster Cult has sold more than 24 million albums worldwide since their debut in 1972.

Wet ‘n’ Wild to add world’s premier funnel slide — Tornado extreme slide exclusive to WNWLV and NV — Fan favorite

Wet ‘n’ Wild Las Vegas

Wet ‘n’ Wild Las Vegas introduces new extreme slide for 2014 Season
TORNADO™ is water park industry’s premier funnel slide,
exclusive to Wet ‘n’ Wild and Nevada

 

Wet ‘n’ Wild Las Vegas today announced it is bringing the world’s premier funnel water slide to Las Vegas and Nevada with the acclaimed TORNADO by ProSlide Technology. The award-winning extreme water slide simulates a natural storm experience and will join the water park’s more than 25 slides and attractions in providing outdoor water fun and lasting memories for families and thrill seekers. While the park will open on April 12 for Spring Break, the Wet ‘n’ Wild Tornado will launch during the official start to summer, Memorial Day weekend.

The Tornado is a four-person raft attraction that catapults riders from 36 feet in the air through a 110-foot tunnel before dropping them into the 45-foot-wide funnel where they spin back and forth through swirling water before plummeting into the eye of the storm. As the raft sweeps up the Tornado wall and crosses its centerline, guests experience weightlessness or zero gravity. With their raft almost vertical on the wall, riders report feeling like they are about to tip over, but the curved funnel wall keeps them perfectly safe. After a series of these oscillations, they descend through a tube to the exit pool.

“The Tornado is an exciting addition to Wet ‘n’ Wild Las Vegas for our guests who will have a new shared extreme slide experience, and for our park in adding a ‘must-have’ slide that’s become a favorite among water park attendees,” said Tim Fisher, CEO of Village Roadshow Theme Parks, one of the world’s leading water and theme park operators that is Wet ‘n’ Wild Las Vegas’ majority owner and oversees day-to-day operations. “And we’re pleased to continue our great partnership with ProSlide Technology. The company’s creativity in developing slides continues to innovate the water park industry.”

Canadian-based ProSlide Technology is a leading developer of innovative water rides.

“Finally Nevada thrill seekers can enjoy the most popular iconic ride in the world at Wet ‘n’ Wild Las Vegas,” said Rick Hunter, ProSlide president and CEO. “The ProSlide TORNADO is the only ride anywhere with a true funnel shape. With its perfectly round opening and curved walls, this shape actually generates an unbeatable excitement level with a big drop into the massive funnel and zero-g sensations.”

He added the TORNADO’s true funnel shape is patented by ProSlide and can’t be replicated. “It’s the physics of the funnel shape that create the unparalleled experience for riders,” he said.

The innovation and ride performance of the ProSlide TORNADO has been recognized with many Best Water Ride honors, including the industry’s most prestigious Industry Impact Award from the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA).

In addition to the Tornado, Wet ‘n’ Wild Las Vegas is adding more hours, more days, more parking and more shade; heating the water in children’s area; and other improvements.  “We had a very successful first season, but are always looking for ways to enhance the guest experience,” said Fisher. “We listened to feedback; and as a result, we’re expanding the number of late night operating hours and operating days, adding more shade areas and lounge chairs, increasing our parking lot, and providing an early entry option for Gold Pass and new VIP Pass holders.”

Wet ‘n’ Wild is now selling its popular season passes, which sold out last year.  “Gold Passes and Season Passes are well-priced offering a family and friends discount when purchasing four or more and can pay for themselves in as little as two visits,” Fisher added.  “They’re a smart and affordable way to extend summer budgets. Our new VIP Pass will do the same.” The VIP Pass option expands on the Gold Pass package by including a number of free Xpress Bands.

In preparation for the April 12 opening, Wet ‘n’ Wild has started the hiring process for more than 450 seasonal jobs.  Applicants should begin online at www.wetnwildlasvegas.com under Employment.

Wet ‘n’ Wild Las Vegas is located at 7055 S. Fort Apache Rd. near I-215 and Sunset Road. For information, season passes, group sales or sponsorships, call (702) 979-1600 or visit www.wetnwildlasvegas.com.
