Orlando World Center Marriott River Falls Waterpark
Located on 200 acres near Walt Disney World, the Orlando World Center Marriott completed a major renovation to its existing pool deck, following the conceptual design developed by Martin Aquatic. The resort debuted its River Falls Waterpark, a combined pool amenity featuring an iconic slide tower that empties riders into a plunge pool before joining a 575-foot-long lazy river. At a height of 50 feet, the slide tower features three innertube slides for 1-2 people, each with thrilling elements for twists and turns around every corner: a Boomerango, Aquasphere, and a Tailspin. Along with stepped entries along the river course, swimmers can wade into the lazy river through an adjacent zero-entry pool, which features eight kid-friendly bubbling nozzles at the water’s edge and two tall spraying vertical leaf elements.
For this project’s waterpark area, Martin Aquatic provided concept design services and hydraulic, structural, filtration, and chemical system design and engineering services.
