Disney Name New Typhoon Lagoon Ride

Hey Thrill Seekers,

Forget theme parks for innovation, at the moment we’re seeing water parks step up and raise the bar… Universal Orlando has set the bar with the news they’ll be opening a brand new water park, Volcano Bay in June 2017 but Disney have also got news of their own.

Back in June we reported that Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon had filed an application with the water authorities to turn an existing back stage area into a new attraction. At that time we weren’t sure exactly what we could expect however last night a bit more information was revealed.

The ride will be called Miss Fortune Falls and will open in the Spring of next year, the park is due to shut from the 25/12/16 until the 11/03/17 for refurbishment.

Miss Fortune Falls will be a family-style raft attraction that takes guests on a splashing journey through the fabled Captain Mary Oceaneer’s past. Legend has it that Captain Oceanear, a treasure-hunting heroine, traveled across the sea collecting unique artifacts before she became stranded at Typhoon Lagoon many years ago by a rogue storm.

Aboard treasure rafts, guests will ascend to the top of the attraction before plunging into a white-water adventure where they will be able to spot some of the treasures Captain Oceanear gathered from around the world.

With a ride time of two minutes, Miss Fortune Falls will be among the longest duration of any attractions at both Disney Water Parks.

Obviously I couldn’t write a piece about Typhoon Lagoon without sharing my favourite video of all time….

We’ll of course give you more information when we know it.

Smiles included…
