New Slide Coming to Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon in 2017
Walt Disney World announced a new raft slide called Miss Fortune Falls is coming to Typhoon Lagoon in 2017! This will be the first addition to Typhoon Lagoon since 2005!
Miss Fortune Falls will be a family-style raft attraction that takes guests on a splashing journey through the fabled Captain Mary Oceaneer’s past. Legend has it that Captain Oceanear, a treasure-hunting heroine, traveled across the sea collecting unique artifacts before she became stranded at Typhoon Lagoon many years ago by a rogue storm. Aboard treasure rafts, guests will ascend to the top of the attraction before plunging into a white-water adventure where they will be able to spot some of the treasures Captain Oceanear gathered from around the world.
Vice President of the water parks Faron Kelley had this to say about the new exciting addition to Typhoon Lagoon:
“We’re thrilled to add to our menu of great guest experiences at Disney’s Water Parks with Miss Fortune Falls. We believe this new attraction will quickly become a favorite with our guests, who are always looking for new ways to enjoy our parks.”
Miss Fortune Falls will be Typhoon Lagoon’s newest addition since 2005. The new waterslide will be located next to the park’s water coaster, Crush N Gusher. Permits for Miss Fortune Falls were discovered in June showing that the slide will cover two empty acres! It will have a time of two minutes, making it the longest ride at any Disney water park.
The timing of this slide is also not a coincidence, since Volcano Bay will be opening at Universal next year. We will have more details as it is released over the next few months.
Sunny skies make swimming possible year-round at Typhoon Lagoon at Walt Disney World Resort. The 53-acre themed water park provides plenty of splashing-good fun with water flumes and slides, raft rides, a children’s play area and an inner tube-filled creek that encircles the entire park.
