When you have been running the whole time on vacation it is nice to just relax while floating down the Cross Country Creek Lazy River at Blizzard Beach. This very large Lazy River is 3,000 feet in length and takes a little more than 30 minutes to go around the entire park. Those who have been to this park before know that this is a great feature, not only for the sheer joy of floating forever and losing yourself in the river but also to get you to all of the attractions without walking. You know how it is when you visit the Parks, you spend so much time walking that your feet hurt so bad during the day that it takes some of the fun out of being there. If you use this slow river to your advantage, it will do a lot of the leg work for you. Since there are a total of 7 Entry and Exit points to this ride, it will certainly get you close to anything you will want to ride.
At the base of a Ski Mountain location
The water that surrounds this amazing alpine village, as the story goes, if fed by underwater springs and melting snow from Mount Gushmore. As you float through the long cave you will feel the cold dripping of the ice water as it melts. On days when it is really hot, it will feel good as it falls over you but there are ways around if you pay attention. The beauty of the rock formations and the waterfalls make this an enjoyable experience no matter what your age. Tubes are provided at each of the entry points but if you would rather swim around or float on your back, those options are fine as well.
