Arizona: Tucson, Nickelodeon Getaways Check Back In To Starr Pass This Spring.
After a “slimingly” successful spring, summer and fall at JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort & Spa, the resort announced today the fun-filled Nickelodeon Getaway program will return this spring.
Beginning Friday, March 5, families can once again enjoy an exciting weekend filled with games, crafts, Dive-In movies, and character meet & greets, all with a side of “neat” or “messy.” Families are invited to experience SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer, games, movies, slimings & more - many of the events are free to guests.
The program begins at check-in. Families will be greeted by a Nickelodeon Getaway Host who will review the upcoming activities during their stay. Parents and kids can experience character breakfasts with Dora the Explorer or SpongeBob SquarePants in the morning, and poolside entertainment later in the afternoon.
The mess hits the deck in Nickelodeon’s signature interactive poolside game show where contestants can end up with a pie in the face, dance to music, play games and trivia, or even be on the receiving end of an iconic Nickelodeon sliming. Shows will begin at 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. Kids can even get Dora and SpongeBob’s autograph!
On Friday and Saturday nights, kids can enjoy a Nickelodeon Dive-In Movie while they slurp down a complimentary Slime Slushy at the Starr Pass pool area. Want to celebrate your birthday with Dora and SpongeBob? One of this spring’s newest offerings is the JW Marriott Birthday Party Special. This fun-filled special at Starr Pass includes food, non-alcoholic drinks and access to the pool all day long. In addition, those who book their party on Saturday are able to participate in the live Nick shows at no charge! The Birthday Party Special rate is available for $40 per person. Parties can be booked by calling (520) 791-6130.
Part of the resort’s pool area includes the refreshing Starr Canyon River and Monsoon Falls Water Slide. It has quickly become one of Southern Arizona ’s most popular attractions. The slide stands 16 feet high, is 110 feet long and offers incredible 360° views of Tucson Mountain Park and the Tucson cityscape. The end of the slide links to the mouth of Starr Canyon River . Twenty-two fountain jets shower guests with a refreshing mist as they float along. It is a favorite amongst the resort’s younger guests, especially while hanging out with Dora the Explorer and SpongeBob SquarePants.
The JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort & Spa Nickelodeon Getaway package includes a two-night stay, SpongeBob SquarePants or Dora The Explorer sleepover kit with pillowcase and Nickelodeon-themed gifts for the kids, and a character breakfast for two adults and two children! This two-night package is offered from March 5 through Labor Day for up to a family of four. Rates are available online.
In addition, seats to the Nickelodeon Character Brunch can be purchased for $35 per adult and $15 per child. Reservations are required.

Having been named to Travel + Leisure World’s Best Hotels Top 500 List two years running (2008, 2009), Starr Pass draws on the beauty of its mountainous location. The resort incorporates the natural desert as its landscape design theme. With 575 spacious guestrooms, 88,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, five restaurants, a 20,000 sq. ft. spa, four separate pools, a lazy river and water slide, an Arnold Palmer Signature golf facility consisting of 27 holes and practice facilities and 888 underground and covered parking spaces, the resort boasts of being not only the largest resort in southern Arizona but also the only true eco-resort in Tucson. This eco theme extends to its Primo restaurant that serves only organic and jet fresh fish, its Hashani Spa, which uses natural desert plant oils and its direct access to the Tucson Mountain Park for fabulous hiking and mountain biking trails. To quote Bill Marriott, “you can build all types of amenities but it would be impossible to duplicate what Starr Pass has, the Tucson Mountain Park."
