Typhoon Lagoon is a wave pool with an area of 2/5 acres and which holds 2.75 million gallons of water. There are two sets of waves that are produced in this pool. The first set is just fun bobbing waves that continue to come. After a half-hour a loud horn will sound which means the waves will be changing. At this point guests have changed into 4 foot waves that come at you with a lot of speed and force.These waves will continue to come every 90 seconds.
Castaway Creek is a cool river that circles the entire park. You can pick up an inner tube at one of the many stops throughout the park to use on this ride. The river is only about 3 or 4 feet deep and runs on a slow current. All you have to do is relax in your tube and travel around the park. As you flow down the river you will see tropical trees, plants, banana trees, and palm trees. You will also hear tropical birds and noises. You will slowly drift through caves, under waterfalls, and around all the other attractions at the park. You can get off at any of the many stops
These are two fast-paced and steep waterslides. Although they are not as steep or fast as Summit Plummet in Blizzard Beach, they are still fun and frightening. You will zip down this 51-foot drop at speeds of around 30-miles-per-hour.
Ocean lovers come straight to this attraction! Guests throw on snorkel equipment and enter this manmade coral reef. You can swim with sharks, sting rays, and tropical fish. For those who do not want to swim they can go into a sunken tanker and watch through some small windows.
