Wet ‘n Wild Las Vegas water park has named Takuya Ohki as general manager and Rick Belhumeur as director of operations and maintenance.
Both are managers for Village Roadshow Theme Parks, the Australian company that will manage the water park at 7055 S. Fort Apache Road. The project was originally scheduled to open in May 2012, but was pushed back to 2013.
Ohki was general manager of Wet ‘n Wild Hawaii following its 2008 acquisition by Village Roadshow Theme Parks.
He managed the $8 million transformation and rebranding of the park to its current name.
Belhumeur will oversee aquatics, loss prevention, facilities and park services departments for Wet ‘n Wild Las Vegas. He joined Village Roadshow Theme Parks in 2009 during construction of its second U.S. water park in Phoenix.
The 41-acre Wet ‘n Wild Las Vegas will have more than 25 slides and attractions. Project investors include Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf; Steven and Karen Thomas; Roger and Scott Bulloch of SPB Partners; and Village Roadshow Limited.
