Question Polynesian Water Slide

I am thinking about staying at the Polynesian shortly after my boys turn 4 and 7. Will they be able to ride the water slide? Are there age/height restrictions on the water slide? Are small children allowed to ride on an adult's lap (since I am guessing my 4-year old would be afraid to go by himself)? Is there a smaller kiddie slide? Thanks!

I don't remember seeing a posted height restriction, but I'm sure someone will be along to correct me if there is lol. I know my youngest 3 went on when they were about 2 1/2-3. No, they can't sit on an adult's lap, and there isn't a smaller kiddie slide.

No height restriction. They can't ride on your lap, but you can assist them at the bottom. They can also wear life vests, you can get one at the marina for your entire stay.

I can tell you from experience that kids around you little one's ages loved that slide. Not to mention middle-aged lunatics like myself love the slide. I still say that's where I left my hairline...

Anyway, just be aware that there are quite a few stairs leading up to the top of the slide which may tire little ones out. Which can be a blessing at the end of the day. Kids crash, parents sit out on the balcony and watch the fireworks...chalk one up for the parents!
