Summer is coming and lots of locals flock to area resorts to enjoy all the amenities they have to offer without having to travel too far. Grande Lakes Orlando, the 500-acre resort that encompasses the Ritz-Carlton Orlando and JW Marriott Orlando, introduced a first-of-its-kind, family-fun interactive water feature on property – AquaCourse 360.
This water-soaked obstacle course invites participants to strap in via harness and tackle a series of balance bars and swinging bridges, with the constant potential of being drenched by water jets or overhead tumble buckets. To add to the challenge, guests are free to squirt participants with high-powered water jets from the sidelines.
“This exciting addition to Grande Lakes is just one of many recreational activities offered,” says Area General Manager Jon McGavin. “The property boasts its very own sports program, Grande Lakes Sports, a 40,000-square-foot Ritz-Carlton Spa; a Greg Norman designed championship golf course and more.”
Kids can also enjoy In-Room Camping with battery-operated lanterns, tents and s’mores, as well as the Ritz Kids program based on exclusive programming designed by Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ocean Future Society. The program offers carefully crafted sensory experiences covering the key pillars of water, land, environmental responsibility and culture to teach young guests about the diverse history of Florida’s wildlife, ecological systems and terrain.
The new AquaCourse 360 is now open for enjoyment year-round and is located near the JW Marriott Lazy River. It costs $25 per guest per day and includes unlimited access throughout the day. Grande Lakes Orlando is offering the following packages this summer.
