WILD ISLAND TO ADD 6 LANES, OTHER ATTRACTIONS

The owners of Wild Island Family Adventure Park in Sparks, Nev., have announced expansions at both Coconut Bowl and Wild Island Water Park.

“We’re really excited to be in a position to grow,” said Wild Island Vice President Gary Nelson. “We’ve listened to our guests and decided to go to the next level of family-friendly entertainment.”

Construction is beginning on a 50,000-sq.-ft. expansion of Coconut Bowl. The expansion will include six additional bowling lanes, private party rooms, an outdoor patio and seating area, and a two-story laser tag arena.

A new-to-the-area blacklight go-kart course also will be built indoors, utilizing battery-powered go-karts. The current kiddie track will be moved inside as well for year-round enjoyment. The redemption and video arcade will be expanded with new games and technology.

Construction is expected to be completed next summer, and Coconut Bowl will remain open during construction.

“The expansion is something we’ve talked about for some time,” said Craig Buster, Coconut Bowl’s General Manager. “We’re doing some things that are totally unique and we hope our guests will be as excited as we are.”

At Wild Island Waterpark, construction recently began on a new water slide named ”G-Force.” It is unlike any slide in the park, and promises to be a big hit with guests when the park opens for the 2017 summer season.

Also for this summer, the Calypso Café will be upgraded, redesigned and renamed the Island Bistro, offering new selections such as paninis and specialty fries. Guests also will be able to order some of Aruba Café’s most popular items at the new Island Bistro.

Wild Island recently was ranked the ninth-best waterpark in the country by the Travel Channel, and its summer season is now under way.

“We are looking forward to the enjoyment Wild Island brings to the families of our community,” said Scott Carothers, General Manager of the waterpark. “I’m certain ‘G-Force’ will put new smiles on a lot of faces.”
