Tips for booking hotels with water slides

Once travelers have narrowed down their options, Dalena encourages asking questions about the specific property.

  • Are there height requirements?
  • Are there lifeguards?
  • If you’re traveling with elderly grandparents or have a disability, are there accommodations for transportation like a shuttle or golf cart?
  • Where is the water park in relation to the rest of the resort? 

“Oftentimes, slides are in a separate, more remote area than the hub of the resort,” Dalena said.
