An Australian businessman is proposing an action sports themed park that would be built either right on or near the famed Las Vegas strip. The ambitions plan for the theme park currently named Vegas Extreme includes a white sand beach made out of repurposed shipping containers, a seven acre lake for jet skiing, whitewater rafting and wakeboarding, a cable system for zip lining, a ski bowl during the winter that would be located where the lake would be for snowboarding, dirt tracks for motocross riding and go carts and six artificial wave machines for surfing.
“Vegas Extreme will stand as a new model for amusement parks around the world,” said Josh Kearney, an electrical engineer who created the plan. “Its focus is on an exploding generation of sporting events and recreation that push the boundaries of human movement.”
The plan is in the initial phases of development and Kearney admits he needs investors to provide funding for the theme park. If constructed it would create 500 permanent jobs and would give vacationers an entirely new option for entertainment.
