On Tuesday a crowd filled the new Hawaiian Falls water park and conference center in White Settlement, but nobody was wearing a swimsuit.

Instead, the visitors were there to help dedicate the attraction by leaving spiritual messages on the structural surface of the still-under-construction wave pool.

“We have a tradition where we dedicate each new Hawaiian Falls park by inviting the community to join us in writing a favorite Scripture or memorial on the floor of the wave pool.” CEO David Busch said in a statement. “The event is a great time for the community to come together and help us dedicate the park in prayer. We hope the entire 18,000-square-foot wave pool bottom is covered with drawings, Scriptures and favorite quotes from our guests.”

The new park, set to open this month, is at the intersection of Clifford Street and North Las Vegas Trail, 2 miles north of Interstate 30.
