Typhoon Lagoon

Typhoon Lagoon Welcome Sign

Twisting tides, roaring rapids, wonderful waterways, and relaxing rivers await you at Typhoon Lagoon. If fish had an amusement park, this would be it, because Typhoon Lagoon is overflowing with the wettest, wildest attractions! Whether you are navigating the nine exhilarating water slides and streams, conquering the world's largest artificially created waves, or snorkeling with sharks, Typhoon Lagoon promises a wonderful water adventure for everyone.


Surf Pool

Surf Pool Waves
Surf Pool

Typhoon Lagoon's signature attraction contains nearly 3 million gallons of water! This gorgeous, turquoise-hued pool is surrounded by a white sand beach. A few times an hour, Miss Tilly will blow her horn, signaling the arrival of a HUGE set of waves, each 90 seconds apart. Those who prefer a little less action can hang out in the two tide pools at the entrance sides, Whitecap Cove and Blustery Bay.  

INTERCOT Alert: These waves are powerful! Stay well into the deep end to ride them, and steer clear of the whitewater where the waves break. Guests can be swept off their feet, and the rough bottom of the pool can cause scrapes and cuts. Keep small children within arms reach at all times.
Crush 'N' Gusher

Typhoon Lagoon's newest thrill ride! On Crush 'n' Gusher, a one of a kind "water coaster," guests will be whisked along a series of flumes and spillways that weave through what appears to be a rusted-out tropical fruit facility. It's another chapter of the Typhoon Lagoon legend. Guests can choose among three different fruit spillways -- Banana Blaster, Coconut Crusher and Pineapple Plunger. The spillways range between 410 to 420 feet in length and feature varying degrees of slopes and turns, reaching a peak of 35-feet and speeds up to 20 m.p.h. Must be at least 48 inches tall to ride.


Crush Gusher 2
Humunga Kowabunga Humunga Kowabunga

Typhoon Lagoon's signature attraction. Three speed slides that send guests flying through caverns at over 30 mph! These 214 foot long slides offer a 51 foot drop. If you can get over your fear of heights, this ride is a must do!  Must be 48 inches tall.
Castaway Creek

Drifting 2,100 foot circular "lazy river" that winds through the park. Wonderful way to cool down, relax, and enjoy the scenery. The slow moving current  takes guests through a rain forest, caves, grottos, and under a water tower with broken pipes. It takes about 20-30 minutes to do a full circuit. Guests may enter and exit only at designated points. Signs will indicate which slides are nearby. Innertubes will be free floating for guest use.

Shark Reef Shark Reef

 Snorkeling with the sharks and tropical fish (gear provided). Children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult. Children must be at least 5 years old to participate.
Ketchakiddie Creek

 Slides, waterfalls, a mini-rapids ride, geysers, fountains, and an interactive tugboat keep kids busy for hours! This area has been designed especially for children under 48 inches. Note: adults may only enter this area while accompanying children who meet the height limit.

Storm Slides Storm Slides

Zoom 30 miles per hour into a refreshing pool. Choose from three body slides: the Jib Jammer, Stern Burner or Rudder Buster.  Each slide is about 300 feet long, and they all offer a slightly different ride. Try them all!
Mayday Falls

This is the longest waterslide in the park. Venture through caves and waterfalls aboard a personal inner tube.
