Oasis in the Desert


Looking for something new this summer? Whenever one thinks of Las Vegas, beautiful outdoor landscapes, an Italian-style area, lakeside views, and resorts might not come to mind. Lake Las Vegas has become one of Vegas’ local’s hidden gems. Lake Las Vegas offers a variety of outdoor and indoor activities. Lake Las Vegas is located in Henderson, Nevada, about a 30-minute drive from The Strip, and is open 7 days a week. 

One of Lake Las Vegas’ biggest attractions is the Aqua Park. The Aqua Park is a floating arrangement of grouped activities. The Aqua Park consists of various climbing walls, slides, swings, and more. The attraction is open to anyone above the age of 6, although anyone under the age of 11 must be accompanied by an adult at all times and most know how to swim. One session can cost  $27 to $35, each session lasts 45 minutes.

Other than the Aqua Park there are still plenty of other aquatic activities on Lake Las Vegas. Paddleboarding is open to older audiences. Participants must be 16 years or older and have the consent of a parent or guardian to ride alone on a paddleboard. Anyone under the age of 18 must also wear a life vest. Prices range from $35 to $40 for a 2-hour paddleboard rental.

Water is propelled through the hose using the Jet Ski’s momentum, and the user can navigate using heel and toe pressure, similar to a hoverboard!
