Typhoon Lagoon

Water slides

Typhoon Lagoon opened on June 1, 1989.

While most people see Typhoon Lagoon as just a water park, the storyline that goes along with the park is actually connected to Downtown Disney. You begin to see the storyline on signs while approaching the parking lot which state:

"A Furious Storm once roared 'cross the sea....
Catching ships in in its path, helpless to flee....
Instead of a certain and watery doom...
The winds swept them here to Typhoon Lagoon."

While walking through the park you will see different ships, cargo, bikes, and other form of debris scattered throughout the parks. Some of the crates scattered throughout are actually addressed to different buildings found on Pleasure Island!

The current attractions at Typhoon Lagoon are Humunga Kowabunga, Storm Slides (Jib Jabber, Stern Burner, Rudder Buster), Mayday Falls, Keelhaul Falls, Gang Plank Falls, Forgotten Grotto, Overlook Pass, Shark Reef, Ketchakiddie Creek, Castaway Creek, and the Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool.

Fun Facts: The wave pool is the largest outdoor wave pool in the world!

Lagoona Gator is the official mascot of Typhoon Lagoon. His relative, Ice Gator, is the mascot of Blizzard Beach!
