These Hotels With Roller Coasters and Water Slides Are Like Sleeping at a Theme Park

Travel + Leisure Logo By Carlye Wisel of Travel + Leisure | Slide 1 of 11: Fans of Disney’s classic Jungle Cruise will feel right at home at this Music City property. Here, an atrium garden filled with 1,500 plants, including a variety of palm trees, forty-foot-tall Southern magnolias and over two dozen kinds of camellias, set the perfect scene for Gaylord Opryland’s very own water attraction. Delta River tours, which depart regularly throughout the day on replica Mississippi River flatboats, pass through four acres of flora along the hotel’s quarter-mile long waterway creating a can’t-miss attraction with a hidden bit of relaxation.

Forget those long days in the sun, waiting in line for drop slides, wave pools and Ferris wheels, because at these properties, it’s all just beyond your hotel room. These thrill-filled hotels aren’t just attached to theme parks, they actually are theme parks with jaw-dropping rides and water park experiences onsite.

At these entertainment megaplexes there’s no need to separate lodging from a vacation packed with family-friendly fun. From a surprise Southern adventure to a gravity-defying Caribbean slide and a roller coaster’s skyline view of Tokyo to a hotel in Las Vegas designed for energetic kids, these are the best fun-filled hotels around the world.
