A Summer Adventure

On the hunt for your next summer vacation? Look no further! Adventure Summer has arrived at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, and it's the crown jewel of family fun.

Check in to The Legend of The Lost Temple, where intrepid archaeologist Sonoran Smith, and his protégé Sam seek to beat a band of mercenary fortune seekers looting an ancient lost Arizonan temple. They know they won't be able to find the precious treasures without help from a few more heroes—are you up for the challenge?

START EXPLORING

Archaeological action abounds and thrilling themed activities await, including a special kid's check where each child is outfitted with a brown fedora and mission assignments; camp activities at Destination Dig with Professor Brown; lagoon fishing; adventurous weekend brunches; Volcano Glo pool parties (complete with DJ and two rip-roaring lava slides!); summer photo ops; and—of course—The Lost Temple adventure itself.

Timeworn relics, coded messages and hair-raising mysteries make up the journey, and only you can help unfold the secrets and unravel the mystery of The Legend of The Lost Temple. This summer only at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess!
