The idea of experiencing the visceral and exhilarating fun of surfing, for most people in America, simply isn’t in the cards, unfortunately. Over half of America’s states are completely landlocked, with no access to an ocean or those “radical” shore breakers. It’s unfortunate because everyone, at some point in their lives, should experience the rush and adrenaline of carving into the swell of one of Mother Nature’s most breathtaking features.
Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino has given intrepid visitors a way to experience this thrilling and extremely fun adventure with the Strip’s first-ever FlowRider Wave-in-a-Box Double by FlowRider, Inc. This experience, which officially opened last summer, has been an incredible addition to Strip offerings. Professional wave riders and novices alike can stop by and hang ten, 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. Regardless of experience level, riders can go from bodyboards to standing up on flowboards to doing kickflips, aerials and other tricks in no time. With FlowRider’s waveform technology, riders should have no fear of wiping out as the surface is designed to absorb the energy of impacts.
To accompany the heralded and exciting opening of The FlowRider, Planet Hollywood is also launching a brand new pool experience. The new pool features a pool bar, live DJs, 21 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. There’s nothing more appropriate after a session of hanging 10 than relaxing afterwards with a Beach Bum cocktail, featuring 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. For a rejuvenative 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).
Guests can test their skills on the FlowRider starting at $20 for 30 minutes. The FlowRider is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. Guests must be 48 inches to ride. For more information, call (702) 785-9106 or visit online at flowrider.com.
