Blizzard Beach Water Park

BLIZZARD BEACH

Park Map

According to Disney legend, word has it that a freak snowstorm resulted in Florida's first ski resort, however, when the snow melted, Florida's sun turned the ski slopes into water slides. So no need to don the parka and mittens, bring your swimsuit and sunglasses to Disney's Blizzard Beach!

A ski resort in Florida - Yes, Disney style, of course! Instead of ski slopes and toboggan runs, you'll have a blast on the water slides and raft rides.

Melt-Away Bay is Blizzard Beach's wave pool, here you won't find the large waves that slap the shore of Typhoon Lagoon, but a bobbing wave pool, one acre in size. Located at the base of "Mount Gushmore", this skiers paradise is constantly fed by melting snow waterfalls.

Lockers:
Locker Rooms with changing facilities and showers are offered near the entrance to the park. Small lockers cost around $13 ($5 refund on return of key), large lockers cost around $15 ($5 refund on return of key).

Towels can be rented for $2, and life jackets and tubes are available free of charge.

2014 Attendance figure = 2,007,000

The Chair Lift allows guests to reach the top of Mount Gushmore with ease; it is equipped with a gondola for guests with disabilities. No infants or lap riding is allowed, and expectant mothers also should not ride.

Summit Plummet offers those brave enough, a ride at speeds up to 60 miles per hour down a 350-foot slide. You must be at least four foot tall to ride this thrill ride, which is visible from anywhere in the park.

Teamboat Springs is a thrilling 1,200-foot white water raft ride, which takes ski resort guests down a twisting slope of rushing waterfalls. Your raft will hold 3 to 5 people.

Toboggan Racers lets guest "belly ride" on a mat, down one of 8 water slide lanes, each 250 feet in length. You travel head first down the snowy slopes and thrilling dips.

Snow Stormers is a set of three flumes, which descend from the top of Mount Gushmore. Enjoy your ride, on a "toboggan", down a switchback course through slalom gates.

Cross-Country Creek is this parks version of a 3,000-foot lazy waterway, which circles the entire park. Hop on a tube and you?ll float through an ice chilling ice cave, as you?re pelted with "melting ice" from overhead.

Slusher Gusher is a tamer water slide, which takes you through 2 dips down this mountain gully. Guests must be 48 inches to ride this 90-foot tall water slide.

The Downhill Double Dipper has ski guests racing down 230 foot, side by side racing slides at speeds up to 25 miles per hour.

Runoff Rapids is an inner tube run which has you swooshing down twisting, turning flumes, two of which are open, and one which is an enclosed black hole. You can enjoy this ride in single, double, or triple tubes.

Ski Patrol Training Camp is an area designed for preteens. Walk along floating "ice bergs" while trying not to fall into the water, slide down an "old pipe" into eight feet of water in Frozen Pipe Springs, and at Ski Patrol Shelter, kids grab onto a T bar and take an airborne ride, until they decide to let go and drop in the water below.

Also among the fun things to do here are Snow Falls, Cool Runners, and the Thin Ice Training Course, all of which offer your pre-teen a day of fun in the sun.

Tike's Peak is big fun for little ones. Here you will find mini water slides, a snow-castle fountain for the wee ones to play in, a squirting ice pond, and rideable "creatures". MAXIMUM height to enjoy this area is 4 feet tall.

Wondering where to dine in this "ski lovers" paradise - Lottawatta Lodge, Avalunch, and the Warming Hut offer typical park fare, or bring your picnic basket and relax in one of the picnic areas. The Polar Pub and Frostbite Freddies offer snacks and cool drinks. Please note, no alcoholic beverages or glass containers are allowed in the park.

Forgot your sunscreen - The Beach Haus has a variety of beach items for your shopping pleasure.
