A company by the name of LVSL is planning to build the world’s first casino-wavepool-spa-beach-club-sanctuary in Las Vegas, Nevada. The pool is still seeking permit approvals but plans to be open by the spring of 2024. Check out the layout below:

A few months ago, plans were announced for a Surf Lakes pool in Las Vegas. The company had been hinting at something big in the desert, and in April, CEO Reuben Buchanan posted on Instagram an artists’ mockup for the new Surf Lakes wave pool.

Today Surf Lakes provided more information on licensee Torrey Ward.

“Ward, an entrepreneur from California, and his small team have been working on finding the perfect location and partners and are now in a position to move forward to make this project a reality,” said Surf Lakes. “Ward was one of the first to take out a Surf Lakes Exclusive Territory Agreement with the view to go to full license. He has been a strong advocate of Surf Lakes technology since the waves pulsed in 2018.”

Developers tend to be very cautious at this stage of a project – too much shouting and it can trigger a backlash, too little noise and it can fly under the radar of investors. Torrey Ward went for the big picture in his public statement.

“I want everyone to benefit from and share in this most special place,” said Ward. “And may there be nothing but peace and happiness and fun, in a very safe and secure clean setting for all.”

The project, known as LVSL (Las Vegas Surf Lakes) describes itself as a wave-healing, earth-art-wave-sanctuary, wave pool, wave casino, spa and super beach club. The company aired a lengthy video complete with SIMS-esque flybys with ocean-surfing scenes splashed in.

If you’re planning a bachelor party at some point in the next few years, be sure to check on the status of this LVSL project. This place will most likely check all of the boxes on your priority list.
