HENDERSON (KSNV MyNews3) -- Co-owner Shawn Hassett says Cowabunga Bay water park will now open for spring break in 2014 instead of this year’s Memorial Day target.

"Obviously it was a hard, internal decision,” Hassett said. “We had some construction delays and would have opened in mid-August. It would be like opening a Christmas Tree lot on Dec. 20.

"We will just gear up and open up by spring break in 2014 with all cylinders firing."

Hassett said the park, at Galleria and Gibson, will issue refunds to all who had bought season passes. He said the park sold about $30,000 worth of season passes.

"Certainly it is disappointing. We knew it was a tall task to begin with,” Hassett said, “and we started late and we knew we were behind the 8-ball. But we kept pushing and pushing."

Wet ‘N’ Wild at Fort Apache and Sunset still intends to open in time for Memorial Day weekend.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
