Having previously reported on the world’s only Texas-shaped, rooftop lazy river before, we know a thing or two about its power to impress! The Houston-based water feature sits atop the Marriott Marquis Houston. It first opened in December 2016, ahead of Super Bowl LI, which was hosted here in Texas. Featuring a variety of amazing amenities, not the least of which was this enormous lazy river showing off its Lone Star State love, the water feature is now open to not only guests of the hotel, but also to the public, with some caveats.

KPRC reported out of Houston that adults, age 21 and older, can now access the Texas-shaped lazy river on the terrace of the Marriott Marquis Houston for a fee, during Open Deck Days. Open Deck Days at the hotel are scheduled from Monday to Thursday, until September 27. No children will be permitted access during these times.

The cost for a day pass to the Marriott Marquis Houston Open Deck Days, if you’re not a hotel guest, begins at $50. The hotel also provides the option to upgrade this pass in order to make use of the hotel spa, or for the rental of a poolside daybed, pergola, cabana, or gazebo. Rental rates for these items can vary in price from $220 to $1,200. If you’re interested in spending a day lazing around the world’s only Texas-shaped lazy river as a public guest, you can find more information at the link provided here.
