Holiday Splashtacular: Celebrations Begin At Tidal Cove Waterpark In Aventura

December 8, 2023

December ushers in a delightful symphony of festive cheer at Tidal Cove, the jewel of JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa. As the winter temperature gets a few degrees cooler in South Florida, this Award-Winning water park transforms into a holiday wonderland from December 22nd, 2023 to January 1st, 2024, offering a spectacular array of seasonal experiences.

Candy Cane Lane And Beyond

Prepare for a sensory journey down Candy Cane Lane, a haven filled with the aroma of freshly brewed Hot Cocoa, delectable holiday treats, and an ambiance that whispers of merriment. But before diving into the seasonal indulgences, be sure to strike a pose at the Naughty and Nice themed cabanas – they're the perfect backdrop for an Instagram-worthy holiday snapshot!

The day’s jubilance peaks at 3:00 p.m. with the Foam and Bubbles Party, where families frolic amidst foam-like "snow" to the beats of classic holiday tunes. As the sun starts its descent, immerse yourself in the enchanting Snowflakes and Fireside Roasting at 5:00 p.m., where “snow flurries” create a whimsical atmosphere, complemented by the delightful aroma of roasting marshmallows.

Entertainment Extravaganza

The holiday cheer doesn’t end with these daily delights. Tidal Cove promises an entertainment fiesta every Friday and Saturday, ensuring that the festivities remain in full swing. And mark your calendars for December 25th, when the legendary Santa Claus himself will make a special appearance, spreading joy and cheer.

While the holiday-themed celebrations steal the spotlight, Tidal Cove offers an array of attractions to thrill and excite visitors of all ages. Feel the rush on the FlowRider® Triple Surf Simulation Pool, drift lazily along the meandering lazy river, or challenge your courage on the seven slides atop the towering 60-foot structure.

Families can revel in the 4,000-Square-Foot Kids Pool Play Area, while adults seeking tranquility can indulge in the Adults-Only VIP Oasis Pool. Tidal Cove, nestled within the JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa at 19999 Country Club Drive, Aventura, Florida 33180, is a haven where holiday magic meets aquatic adventure.
