"Must Do's" at Typhoon Lagoon
First for those that have never visited Typhoon Lagoon let me give you a little background knowledge…
According to Disney sources a few years ago there was a furious storm out at sea that was so violent that surfboards were blown into trees, small boats were blown through roofs and a shrimp fishing boat was impaled on the peak of a volcanic mountain!! This Typhoon eventually subsided and in it’s wake was left a fabulous water park with exhilarating water rides, chutes and slides galore and one of the World’s largest wave pools. As well as all the high adventure thrill rides there are some less intense rides and attractions making it a great day out for all the family. Humunga Kowabunga
there is a minimum height requirement of 48” for this ride
These three side by side 214 foot enclosed chutes run down the side of Mount Mayday, that’s a drop of five stories in seconds!
Tip: Ladies may like to opt for a one piece swimsuit when they take on the water chutes! Mayday Falls
This is the longest waterslide in the park, you travel in your own inner tube and as you swirl your way down the mountain, don’t forget to look up at the stranded shrimp boat1
Tip: Don’t forget to collect your inner tube at the base of the ride. Castaway Creek
This lazy river ride is the perfect way to soak up that wonderful Floridian sun as you gently meander your way around the park, it’s also great for travelling between the rides, you can grab a tube at any of the boarding points, if there are none there when you arrive, just grab one as it floats by. If you want to travel the entire circuit it takes about 30 minutes to float round. Surf Pool
You can take a refreshing dip in the beautiful blue waters of the wave pool, or you can swim out and body surf each time one of the giant waves comes crashing through the pool. There is even the opportunity to have surfing lessons before the park opens.
Tip: Hang onto little ones and keep them in the shallows away from the high octane excitement! Ketchakiddee Creek
There is a maximum height of 48” for this attraction
This is where the younger surf dudes can have the place to themselves, there are slides, fountains, and plenty of sand if they want to play with their buckets and spades! The little ones must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
Tip: Don’t forget the sunscreen!
