As legend has it, Blizzard Beach was created by a
freak winter storm that dropped snow over the western side of the Walt Disney World®
Resort. Temperatures soared, however, and as water began to cascade down Mt. Gushmore, the
first ski resort/water adventure park was born!
Bobsledding down the snowy slopes of Mt. Gushmore
or plunging straight down Summit Plummet at 60 mph will give you the spine-chilling
thrills of a northern ski resort. But the Blizzard Beach water adventure park is pure
tropical fun in the sun.

addition, this area features a snow-castle fountain play area and pop jets.

nestled against the base of Mt. Gushmore, that is constantly fed by "melting
