LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
It came down to five finalists, and now there is a winner.
On Monday, the people behind the soon-to-be-opened Wet ‘n' Wild Las Vegas water park announced the winner of the wave pool naming contest is Red Rock Bay.
The winning name was submitted by Ted Stringer, who won a prize package including VIP passes, meals and more.
The other finalist submissions were:
The Ragin' Rebel
More than 2,300 people voted in the contest.
"Red Rock Bay. What a great name for the wave pool and great response to our contest from fans all over the state," said Trevor Wilson, Wet 'n' Wild Las Vegas director of marketing. "We couldn't be happier with the results as Red Rock Bay takes its place alongside our other world class attractions and slides."
The Red Rock Bay Wave Pool will treat guests to three-foot-high swells. You'll be able to use a tube or body surf. If you're not up for the ocean experience, the shallow end will have relaxing, gently rolling waves.
Wet ‘n' Wild Las Vegas, located at 7055 S. Fort Apache Rd. near I-215 and Sunset Road, is set to open Memorial Day weekend.
