Typhoon Lagoon has to be one of the best water parks anywhere. From the Big Wave right down to the Lazy River, the enjoyment factor at this park would be very difficult to beat.
The park opens around 9.30am in the summer time and 10am in the winter time, closing around 6pm. To get there on time will mean you are more than likely to get a good location to spend your day inside the park. It does get very busy and finding a spot can become difficult.
The main focus of the park is the fantastic wave machine that runs continually throughout the day in about 3-4 min intervals. Kids and adults try to body surf while the crowds in the shallower part scream as the wave comes ever closer. Once the wave hits you the force carries you further back, but doesn’t stop you getting up having a laugh and heading back ready for the next one to come.
At the sides of the main wave area you will come across many water slides and things to do. You may want to take on the 214 foot enclosed Humunga Kowabunga the slide for the person who likes speed, just hold on to your swimwear though. There are many other slides throughout the park, you may want to grab your inner tube and hit Keelhual Falls a white water trip for all the family, or you might just want to go alone and ride the rapids of Mayday Falls or Gangplank Falls, all will thrill and excite you in this day of adventures. New to the park in the last couple of years is Crush N Gusher a 3 slide experience where the water jets you down thorough the tunnels on this twisting and winding slide, a firm favorite of ours.
Typhoon Lagoon has a large tank/pool called Shark Reef where you have the opportunity to Scuba Dive or snorkel with Tropical Fish and or course Sharks. Be where the water is cold but the fish and sharks take your mind away from that as you swim around the tank looking and spotting all the various sea life in front of you.
Food is available at a couple of places in the park. Firm favorites such as Burgers, Pizza and hotdogs are on offer, all accompanied why fries and a drink of your choice.
Little ones also have there own play area at Ketchakiddee Creek, a section full of rides, Minnie rapids and much more. Typhoon Lagoon has something for all ages.
And finally The Lazy River, if you just want to relax put your head back and let the minutes tick away, grab yourself your own inner tube and float around this tropical ride. But watch out as you may be on the receiving end of a water gun of two and other obstacles to keep you on your toes.
Typhoon Lagoon is without doubt one of the best water parks we have ever been to, this has to be on your agenda if visiting Orlando, a refreshing day out for all the family filled with fun packed water slides, and of course the BIG WAVE.
