Kids Get Slimed at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort
Sometimes we forget that Spring Break means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. It’s true, some Spring Breaks don’t involve girls with low self-esteem or the slimy guys who prey on them.
At the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort, for instance, spring break is all about a different, infinitely more wholesome, slime. As in Nickelodeon’s “Slime Time” and “Slimo Bingo.” That’s right — through April 28, kids aged 4 to 12 can live out their spring break fantasies at the resort’s Nickelodeon Activity Zone with full and half-day sessions, which include an appearance by none other than SpongeBob SquarePants. Plus: arts and crafts (pottery painting, jewelry-making), stargazing, a Sonoran desert walk, and a “Nick After Dark” program with games, a Nickelodeon movie, and dinner (5 to 9 p.m.).
The older-than-12 crowd can live out their own fantasies (sans kiddies). The resort offers golf at the Wildfire Golf Club (with two championship courses by Nick Faldo and Arnold Palmer), the two-story Revive Spa, eight tennis courts, a Lazy River (pictured), and the Wii-equipped Vista Lounge.
The Nickelodeon NAZ Club Extravaganza Package starts at $189 per night and includes a deluxe room, daily breakfast with SpongeBob SquarePants, free meals for kids under 12 at Blue Sage Restaurant, and more Nickelodeon goodness.
