Hey Thrill Seekers,
So as you may or may not know, Miss Adventure Falls finally opened at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon on the 12th March 2017, the first new attraction since Crush n’ Gusher in 2005, but what are people’s thoughts on it so far?
We all know that a new attraction is like THE best thing to ever happen in the theme park world, but are we ever disappointed in them? By the sounds of things, Miss Adventure Falls is a massive hit!
Like no other ride at Typhoon Lagoon, Miss Adventure Falls is 2 minute’s long with a conveyor belt that takes you in your raft up to the top. Everyone has got to be happy about this, surely?! Not trecking up all the steps, raft in arm, in the scorching sun.
As it’s a 4 person raft, it is definitely a family ride and with no height limit it’s not going to be as thrilling as Crush ‘n’ Gusher.
From reviews we’ve been receiving although you could fit 4 people in, some people have said 3 was rather ‘snug’. Everyone is different shapes and sizes so who knows how many people you could squeeze in!
Disney always have a story behind every attraction and this one is so interesting! It brings to life, the story of Captain Mary Oceaneer who’s a treasure hunting heroine that got stranded at Typhoon Lagoon with her pet parrot, Duncan in a rogue storm years and years ago.
The raft you ride in, is your treasure raft that takes you on their adventure. You’ll go up past the Captains wrecked ship where she will be sitting with her parrot. This is the first of its kind at a Disney water park as the parrot is an animatronic animal so he will talk to you about how he is still hunting for treasure to this day!
Going through the queue and you will see the story briefly written on signs letting you know what you’re about to venture into! The conveyor belt is a high capacity system aiming to keep queue times shorter. So far the longest it’s been recorded at is 5 minutes!
Steven from Glasgow said;
It’s great fun, longer than expected, I loved the theming and although billed as a family ride, was still quite thrilling.
Scott from London said;
the ride was effortless – pure laziness is all that is required and what more could you ask for at a water park.
Janet from Cornwall said;
my daughter doesn’t usually like water parks as she’s not a strong swimmer so is always too scared to go on any of the rides but Miss Adventure Falls is perfect for her and now she wants to go on all of them!
Through the first couple of days, there were a few delays due to some of the rafts being abandoned at the bottom but this is all part of opening new attractions! You can see what works and what doesn’t and if it doesn’t, change it. I’m sure it won’t be long before Disney are up to full speed with this attraction and making sure everything runs smoothly.
Finally, there has been a lot of talk about Miss Adventure Falls replacing Shark Reef. This is not true guys!! Miss Adventure Falls is in a different spot to Shark Reef however Shark Reef has sadly closed! 🙁
