PHOENIX — A north Phoenix resort is upping its pool game with a water park that features three multistory slides, an enhanced lazy river and other luxury amenities.
JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort & Spa poured $18 million into its pool transformation, part of $80 million in updates across the 950-room property, the hotel said in a press release Monday.
The 140,000-square-foot AquaRidge WaterPark is set to debut mid-summer, according to the release.
The park will feature two water slides for thrill-seekers, Gullywasher and The Drop, and one called Little Eddy for beginners. It also has a new outdoor snack zone, Havasu Bar & Bites.
