Florida Guide > Disney General
We all love water parks and when you visit Orlando these park should be high up on your priority list of parks to visit.
Let’s start by talking about Typhoon Lagoon. This park is situated on the Disney World complex close to Magic Kingdom. This park is based on a huge Typhoon once hitting Disney and creating mayhem, the result a huge wave and surf pool. Surrounding this is a mixture of slides, restaurants, lagoons and much more.
Starting with the Surf Pool, what makes this huge pool so unique is that it has one of the largest wave machines in the world, the net result is when the wave machine starts it creates an almighty wave that comes at you like a juggernaut, be afraid be very afraid when the wave hits you. It really is a superb setting though, as you look up from the pool you have a ship that has been wrecked high on a rocky mountain top better known as the stranded Shrimp boat.
The first great slide to tell you about is better known as the Humunga Kowabunga. This has 3 slides that drop you down in a flume and the best part is you don’t know where you’re going or where your going to end up, it’s a thrill ride not to be missed.
Mayday Falls is next Plunge into the longest water slide in the park, you travel through caves and waterfalls on your own personnel rubber tube, you swirl and twist down the mountain so get ready for lots of thrills.
Castaway Creek is a nice relaxing ride around the whole water park in a rubber tube; your gentle journey takes you through mists, grottoes, waterfalls and rain forests, very nice for all the family to enjoy.
Ketchakiddie Creek. This is great for the kids to enjoy with a selection of small slides, fun filled fountains, watery whales, slippery seals and much more.
Shark Reef. I particularly like this because you get up close and personnel. You swim into a tank with real live Sharks and tropical fish all around you. This all takes place on a reef, which surrounds an overturned sunken tanker; you can even go inside the tanker and see the sharks through the portholes.
There are 2 great places to eat at Typhoon Lagoon; the first is Leaning Palms, a nice selection of food including pizzas, hotdogs, hamburgers, Ice cream and frozen yogurt.
The other is Typhoon Tilley’s; this has some really tasty salads as well as your usual burger and chips. You can also get beer and beverages here or for the sweet tooth in you why not try one of their delicious cream cakes.
I can thoroughly recommend Typhoon Lagoon as a great water park to visit.
