Twin Falls, Idaho - Community members gathered Thursday at a brand new custom-made car wash in Twin Falls, to celebrate the grand opening.
Rocket Express Car Wash, off Blue Lakes Boulevard, officially opened its doors on Monday; Thursday, community members celebrated with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
Joe Russell and his wife began planning for this car wash two years ago; Russell says it's very 'green.'
"We have an elaborate water system; we're doing our utmost to be ecologically responsible. We reclaim between 50 to 60 gallons of water....we're actually going to be increasing that. We're going to have the ability to get up to 90 percent of our water to be reclaimed.”
They're providing free car washes all week as part of the grand opening ceremony; over the past few days they've washed over 4,000 cars.
Russell says this is the longest and fastest car wash in America.
