LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Construction delays have forced developers of a $20 million Las Vegas water park to delay its Memorial Day opening to spring 2013.

Plans for Splash Canyon were announced in November. It is to be constructed on a 35-acre area at Fort Apache Road between Maule Avenue and Warm Springs Road on the valley's southwest side.

But little construction has happened at the site, and developer SPB Partners said Friday that the delay was to ensure a "full first-year season for pass holders."

Anyone who purchased season passes for 2012 can get a refund or convert to a 2013 season pass for $49.50, half the price of a full season pass.

SPB said Splash Canyon would create 500 seasonal jobs when it opens. Applications are being accepted by email, and more information is available at the park's website.

The group is also partnering with the Howard Hughes Corporation to develop a community park and aquatics center adjacent to Splash Canyon.
