The Las Vegas Strip’s First-Ever FlowRider® Surf Simulator Now Open at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino

LAS VEGAS (April 14th, 2015)— Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino is changing the Las Vegas summer scene with the opening of the Strip’s first-ever FlowRider Wave-in-a-Box Double, by FlowRider, Inc. This new addition has professional wave riders and novices alike hanging ten and testing their talents in a safe, yet exhilarating environment.

Beyond what most waterparks typically offer, the FlowRider Wave-in-a-Box Double sharpens a variety of board-sport skills – surfing, snowboarding, wakeboarding, skimboarding, and skateboarding. In no time, riders go from bodyboards to standing up on flowboards to doing kickflips, aerials and other tricks. With FlowRider’s patented technology, riders should have no fear of wiping out as the surface is designed to absorb the energy of impacts.

The installation of this unit, on the 6th floor pool deck, was of great interest to the local residents back in January, when northbound Las Vegas Blvd was closed to one lane for 36 hrs.  With hard work, the many logistical challenges were overcome to produce a gleaming FlowRider ready for the high desert heat.  What has emerged, is a wonderful surf experience with a rooftop setting that includes epic views of the Vegas Strip.

Guests can test their skills on the FlowRider for $20 for 30 minutes.

The FlowRider is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.In conjunction with the opening of The FlowRider April 17th, Planet Hollywood is offering a brand new pool experience. The new pool features a pool bar, live Djs, 31 all-new cabanas with poolside bottle service, TVs and air conditioning, daybeds with safes and retractable shades and a pool café.

After experiencing the FlowRider while relaxing poolside, guests can sip on the new specialty cocktail menu, which offers three distinct categories of beverages: Specialty Cocktails, Fit and Trim, and Energized. Enjoy a refreshing Beach Bum, Made Bacardi Mango Fusion, spiced mango, fresh pineapple, fresh lime and fresh basil. For those who are still working on their bikini bodies, try a Skinni-Dip, comprised of Stoli Blueberry, O.N.E Coconut Water, fresh lemon juice and a splash of cranberry juice. If you are looking for a boost after a late night, choose from three unique cocktails made with the Red Bull flavor of your choice (Regular, Sugar Free, Lime, Cranberry or Blueberry).
