Guests can learn to surf in the middle of the desert in the FlowRider Wave-in-a-Box Double at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

Summer Splashes

Three new adventures in or above the water

BY MARGIE GOLDSMITH

HANGING 10 ON THE STRIP
Catch a wave in Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino's new surf pool, called the FlowRider Wave-in-a-Box Double. Board riders of all levels need not fear wiping out - not because what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but because the surface is, for the most part, soft and rubbery. 702-785-9106; caesars.com/planet-hollywood

FOR VIEW-SEEKERS

Push beyond your comfort level zip lining at Climb Works Keana Farms on the North Shore of Oahu. In June, the company will add a 2,500-foot zip line overlooking the region's scenic beaches and lush mountains, bringing the total number of world-class, dual side-by-side zip lines here to eight. For ages 7 and up. 808-200-7906; climbworks.com/keana_farms

WHITEWATER RUSH
Drop between the waves in one of the country's smallest guided whitewater rubber rafts, less than 10 feet long and with room for just two people and a Mad River Boat Trips guide. On the Snake River in Jackson Hole, Wyo., you'll float down eight miles as you maneuver moderate Class III rapids. This adrenaline-fueled adventure, scheduled to debut in June, is geared for ages 13 and up and includes splash gear. 800-458-7238; mad-river.com
