The two hotels at the 500-acre Grande Lakes resort complex, the Ritz-Carlton Grande Lakes and the JW Marriott Grande Lakes, opened AquaCourse 360, a family-friendly interactive water installation for guests of both hotels.
AquaCourse 360 comprises 10 minutes of obstacles, water cannons, balance bars and swinging bridges. Guests slip a safety harness over their swimsuit before entering the obstacle course, where they can count on getting soaked by water jets or overhead "tumble buckets." Guests on the sidelines or waiting to get on the course can squirt AquaCourse participants with high-powered water jets.
The AquaCourse 360, located near the JW Marriott lazy river, is free to hotels guests and will be open year-round.
