Nevada’s acclaimed water park, Wet’n’Wild Las Vegas, will celebrate its fifth birthday party with their first-ever Vegas Idol singing competition on Saturday, May 27.

To enter the competition, kids had to submit a video of themselves singing a cappella or to a track. Wet’n’Wild selected the top 20 finalists and posted them on the Wet’n’Wild Las Vegas YouTube page where family and friends had to vote for their favorite singers. On May 27, the top 10 children will compete at the Red Rock Bay wave pool stage beginning at noon for the cash prize.
Bryan Chan, former member of boy band LMNT and star of ABC’s “Making The Band,” will emcee the event while the judges include FOX5’s Sean McAllister, host of MORE & MORE Access; Nani Urie, mother of Panic! At The Disco’s lead singer, Brendon Urie; and Bryan Cheatham, host and creative director of Chippendales at the Rio and NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.”

About Wet‘n’Wild Las Vegas
Wet‘n’Wild Las Vegas is Nevada’s premier water park with more than 25 slides and attractions covering more than 20 acres, and a place for both thrill seekers and families. As Las Vegas’ Summer Playground, the park features the Tornado, a premier slide that catapults riders to a zero gravity experience; Rattler, the first slide of its kind in North America; and Constrictor, an extreme water slide featuring some of the tightest turns. Families and those desiring a more relaxing experience can enjoy Paradise Falls, the interactive children’s area with kid friendly slides and a giant dumping bucket; Colorado Cooler lazy river; and Red Rock Bay wave pool. In 2015, one of the parks most popular slides, Zipp Zapp Zoom, debuted a new and exciting addition, Slideboarding, the world’s first waterslide gaming experience. Slideboarding integrates gaming, skill, and competitive sports with the thrills of a water park. The property is a partnership between Village Roadshow Theme Parks, the majority owner and overseer of day-to-day operations, and Las Vegas investors through SPB Partners, one of Nevada’s first private equity funds. Wet’n’Wild Las Vegas was voted “Best Water Park” and “Best Aquatics Facility” in Las Vegas Review-Journal’s 2016 Best of Las Vegas Awards. The park celebrates its fifth year of operation in 2017.
