Debuting March 16, 2022, at the newly renovated Orlando World Center Marriott, River Falls water park has a lot to offer resort guests, and it’s included in the nightly room rate.

Three thrilling inner tube water slides launch from a 50-foot central tower

River Falls three water slides
Boomerang, Aquasphere, and Tailspin water slides

Boomerang dives into 425 feet of fast-paced action highlighted by a rounded element that launches riders 20-feet upward, where they’ll “ricochet” left and right on the way to splashdown.

Aquasphere’s 498 feet of dips, twists, and turns feature dark-ride time through closed spheres ahead of a big drop down the slide to a watery finale.

Tailspin, the longest of the three slides at a whopping 525 feet, funnels riders into an enclosed tail spin element, with glimpses of the sky as passengers hurtle through open-air tubes toward the bottom and a plunge into the splash pool.

River Falls water play area keeps youngsters happy

An aqua playground keeps the resort’s youngest guests cool with kid-friendly bubbling nozzles and two vertical, leaf-themed, rain-shower-style spray elements.

Visitors of all ages can relax and unwind along the gentle twists and turns of the ten-foot wide, 575-foot-long Lazy River, which opens to a zero-entry pool that allows easy access for everyone.

Complementary tubes suitable for up to two riders will be provided at the entry to the slide tower and the lazy river, and guests will find plenty of lounge chairs for relaxing poolside.

River Falls also features cabanas for rent, and a refreshment station. Want the ultimate in relaxation? Seek out one of the hammocks located amid the lush, tropical landscaping.

Robert Bray, general manager at Orlando World Center Marriott, said, “We are incredibly excited to add a state-of-the-art water park attraction to the extensive list of new and recently renovated offerings at Orlando World Center Marriott. River Falls water park makes our hotel the destination in Orlando for families, couples, or those on property for meetings and conventions.”

The water park will be open daily, and adds a second splash-play option to the resort, along with the redesigned Falls Pool Oasis, a 400,000 gallon zero-entry lagoon-style heated pool with waterfalls, submerged sun shelves, two slides, a speed slide, and a children’s bubbler and spray zone.
