LIGHTHOUSE WATERSLIDENEWLY OPENED at Sunset Jamaica Grande: The exciting, new Lighthouse Waterslide is a thrill for everyone and is set to become a landmark along the Ocho Rios coastline. Architecturally designed like a traditional lighthouse, the new attraction is nothing like its counterparts! Impressively statuesque, guests climb an enclosed spiral staircase 60 feet up to an observation desk with an awe-inspiring, 360-degree panoramic view over the Caribbean Sea and the entire resort complex.
Two separate, full body water slides--one enclosed and one open and each a whopping 330 and 340 feet in length--twist and turn around the lighthouse for a shooting good time. After zooming down the slide, guests will refresh with a splash arriving in one of the resort's swimming pools or the azure blue ocean.
The lower level of the Lighthouse includes an air-conditioned arcade featuring a variety of video games.
