It may be too cold to swim, but Wet'n'Wild has other plans for the holidays.

In partnership with Dark Knight Entertainment, the Las Vegas water park has turned into a Christmas Town.

Geared towards families, attractions around the park include a synthetic skating rink, a 100-foot sledding hill, a train ride, a paintball midway game, a 40-foot Christmas tree, and more.

Christmas Town also donated a bulk of tickets to nonprofits that support Southern Nevada. The organizations are free to use those tickets to raise money or give them to volunteers as a token of appreciation.

Participating nonprofits include the following:

  • HELP of Southern Nevada - HELP assists low-income families, homeless teens, and others in need to become more self-sufficient through direct services, trainings, and referrals 
  • Communities in Schools of Nevada - CIS of Nevada works with the community to help kids stay in school, aiming to create resources tailored to each student's specific needs
  • After-School All-Stars Las Vegas - More than 6,500 underprivileged youth from 16 different schools rely on After-School All-Stars for programs that focus on academics, athletics, and culteral enrichment
  • Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation - Established in 1993, the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation offers educational services, financial support, and counseling for critically-ill children and their families
  • Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada - Serving more than 20,000 youth in the Las Vegas valley, Boys & Girls Clubs offer a variety of daily creative, fun, and educational programs for students that need it the most
  • Best Buddies Nevada - Best Buddies is an international volunteer movement to help people with intellectual and developmental disabilities secure jobs, live independently, and feel valued by society.

The public can visit Christmas Town from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Friday-Saturday. (It'll be closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day). Tickets are $20 per person.
