Typhoon Lagoon part 1
Typhoon Lagoon Part 1
Our first trip to a Disney water park was to Typhoon Lagoon many years ago, it was our very first trip to Florida to experience the whole Disney adventure
After a few days hurriedly experiencing the theme parks we decided to have a break and do something different and decided to visit Typhoon Lagoon
After parking the car and proceeding to the entrance immediately we knew we were in for a real treat, once inside the park the Caribbean theme is very evident with the piped music and the buildings etc
First view of the typhoon is dominated by the shipwreck high up above and the sound of the horn culminating in the huge waves been started in the lagoon and the sound of the children and adults cheering as the waves start
After finding a base to return to for the kids if they should get lost we found the castaway creek and jumped on a tube to ride round the castaway creek and see the whole of the park, lazing on the tubes floating round the park is a great way to relax (unless you have kids as they always steer their unaware parents into the sprays of cold water from the various waterfalls etc)
Next was Shark Reef where there is a upturned ship wreck where you can view the fish in the surrounding tank along with some small sharks, for the brave ones some scuba gear is available to use if you would like to swim the short distance across the tank giving great views of the fish, coral and the sharks. As with everything Disney the are life guards on hand should you have a problem and I should point out the sharks are very very small
Another favourite is the family raft ride Keelhaul Falls which is thrilling for a family of four with small children and once again is very safe and off course all mums and dads seem to get wet from the cold water that spills onto them from the various waterfalls, funny how the kids always manage to avoid them
Next was the storm slides, which are great fun they are water rides where you sit on a tube singly, or with another person these are great fun
For the brave ones amongst you there is the Humunga Kowabunga which is a massive slide, of course the kids love anything like this and show no fear and being the dad of the group you can’t not ride the Humunga Kowabunga all I can say is that I did it just the once
There are also a couple of tubes slides called Mayday Falls, these are great fun too and we had a number of runs on both of these before we moved on to the lagoon itself...
