Typhoon Lagoon is a water park located at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, United States and opened on June 1, 1989 next door to Blizzard Beach. Since then the park’s popularity never stopped to grow and in 2012, Typhoon Lagoon admitted approximately 2,100,000 visitors, making it the most visited water park in the world. The park is themed as a tropical oasis, so when you enter and are presented with a view of one of the world’s largest wave pools and a giant mountain with a boat sitting on top you feel as if you are no longer in Central Florida. In fact the theme of the park is the “Disney legend” of a typhoon that wreaked havoc upon a formerly pristine tropical paradise. Ships, fishing gear and surfboards are strewn about where the storm flung them. The centerpiece of the park is “Miss Tilly,” a shrimp boat impaled upon a mountain named “Mount Mayday” that erupts a 50-foot (15 m) geyser of water every half hour, right before the bells of the watch sound on Miss Tilly.
The main attractions are the wave pool,which shoots out a huge 7ft wave approximately every minute and a half and the water coaster Crush’n Gusher because the water actually pushes you up the hills. Another unique attraction is Shark Reef here you get to snorkel with real sharks and other marine animals. Apart from these highlights thrill seekers will not find here big thrill rides like Wet n Wild, but at the end of the day there is nothing more relaxing than the lazy river.
All services in the park are top nosh. Disney style. Safety is paramount at all times and life vests are provided free of charge to anyone needing one. Lockers are provided for 15 USD and 5 are returned (or your choice of a Disney cup) to you for returning the key at the end of the day. Although the cabana is rather expensive at $300 for the day, it makes the experience much more pleasurable because it includes adirondack chairs with cushions, a safe, unlimited towels and unlimited soda refills. Typhoon Lagoon has a few restaurants that serve mostly stereotypical theme park food, with not much in the way of interesting option. Look for a stand of fresh Donuts
It’s Disney of course, so everything is family friendly, professional without flaws and very expensive. But the wave pool is outstanding and easily worth the price of admission alone.Web page Top Rides
