Vegas Extreme Park gets the go-ahead from Clark County

A rendering of Vegas Extreme Park.

You know the drill: A developer announces an ambitious, drool-worthy attraction for Las Vegas—and then nothing happens. (Ahem, Mars World.) But it looks like something’s happening with the extreme/water sports park proposed back in 2013. On September 6, the Clark County Commission approved a land use permit for the Vegas Extreme Park LLC project on a 130-acre parcel of land at the southeast corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Sunset Road (where the All-American Sports Park and TaylorMade golf course currently reside). Amenities will include a 15-story hotel/casino; lakes for cable wakeboarding, surf and whitewater rafting; indoor biking and skydiving; towers for rock climbing and bungee jumping; and ziplines.
