The Nickelodeon Getaway is back at the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort & Spa, providing families weekends of games, crafts, dive-in movies, character "meet and greets" and more.

A Nickelodeon Getaway Host greets guests and reviews the activities, which can include 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 be on the receiving end of an iconic Nickelodeon sliming. Shows begin at 1:30 and 3:30 p.m.

Dive-in movies are Friday and Saturday nights, with a complimentary Slime Slushy at the Starr Pass pool area.

Birthday specials are included, with food, non-alcoholic drinks and access to the pool all day long.

Part of the resort's pool area includes the Starr Canyon River and Monsoon Falls Water Slide, which is 16 feet high, is 110 feet long and offers views of Tucson Mountain Park and the Tucson cityscape. The end of the slide links to the mouth of Starr Canyon River.

Two-night packages are offered through Labor Day.
