Lazy River Fun


In the summer months, The Woodlands Resort is alive with excitement centering around the Forest Oasis: Lazy River & Waterpark. Located within a vast poolside environment surrounded by three luxurious guestroom buildings, towering pines and the Panther Trail™ golf course and the lush forest, the spectacular Forest Oasis: Lazy River & Waterpark has been designed to provide a fun and refreshing experience for the entire family. Adjacent to the pool area, a signature lazy river winds through the surrounding forest.  Kid friendly dive-in movies are shown nightly during the week of Spring Break and from Memorial Day through Labor Day in the summer.

Everyone will enjoy the Forest Oasis: Lazy River & Waterpark's most stunning feature: A 30-foot Tower outfitted with a double-helix water slide, waterfall and underwater marine mural open Memorial Day through Labor Day. Kids of all ages will love racing down the slides and participating in underwater treasure hunts as they listen to the sounds of the ocean. Guests can also now enjoy our 1,005 foot lazy river as it weaves through the forest canopy.  

Parents can keep an eye on little ones while lounging in the zero-grade entry pool at Puffy's Sprayground™. Themed around The Woodlands' mascot, Puffy Pine Cone, the zone features a synchronized, computer-activated water experience with waterspouts and fountains.

At dusk, families gather around the fire pit for scrumptious build-your-own s'mores and, afterwards, head back into the pool for nightly dive-in movie screenings. A host of weekend activities, such as crafts, karaoke, games and music entertainment, keep the air filled with fun and excitement.

Mere footsteps from the buzz of the recreation pool, an additional lagoon pool offers a serene atmosphere with its calming ten-foot water wall and bench seating. Conveniently located between both pool areas, the Cool Water Café provides a variety of refreshments and food to enjoy poolside at leisure.

The summer seasonal activity schedule which includes nightly dive in movies runs from Memorial Day Weekend to Labor Day Weekend. The pools are open year round (pools are unheated) and the water slides run seasonally starting Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day Weekend.
