Water parks to splash in; buffet hikes all-day price

By Anthony Curtis

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Jan 13, 2013

~~<p>Several years after Wet 'n Wild on the Strip closed, no fewer than three water parks are now poised to operate in the Las Vegas area. On the west side of town, Wet 'n' Wild Las Vegas (no affiliation with the original) is already under construction. The $50 million park built on 40 acres has been delayed and renamed a couple of times but is now expected to debut on Memorial Day. On the east side, ground has been broken on Cowabunga Bay, a $23 million park built on 23 acres, also scheduled to open on Memorial Day. MGM Resorts International has just said it is considering building a 5.5-acre water park at Circus Circus, though no firm plans have been announced. All will offer some combination of wave pools, slides, other water rides and attractions.</p>
<p>All-day buffet bump: The price for the &quot;Buffet of Buffets&quot; has been raised again, this time by $3 to $49.99, or $47.99 if you show a players card. The Buffet of Buffets offers unlimited access to six buffets at Caesars Entertainment casinos, good for 24 hours.</p>
