Blizzard Beach Water Slides
Well rounded fun for everyone in your group is what you will find at Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Slides in Orlando. Considering, there are three (3) different age-appropriate sections, you will find something for all ages. There are large water slides for the thrill-seekers, family tube rides, and a Kiddie Play area for the youngest ones. Often times you will have kids somewhere in the middle. Blizzard Beach has done a great job of creating a perfect section just for them as well.
Big Water Slides at Blizzard Beach
If you are looking for the most thrills around Blizzard Beach, your first stop will have to be the Summit Plummet. Summit Plummet is one you can’t miss as you enter the Blizzard Beach water park. You might look up at Mount Gushmore and be very surprised at this water slide. What’s the big deal, you might ask? Well, Summit Plummet was designed to look like a ski jump. Until you get up closer, it appears that anyone coming down, will fly right off of the edge of a ski slope, and drop a hundred feet to the ground.
The Summit Plummet water slide is one of the biggest Speed slides around. You have to climb up 12 stories before you get to the start where you will drop through a dark tunnel. Anyone looking for the biggest Water Thrill ride in Orlando must give Summit Plummet a try.
- 120 Foot Drop
- It would be like sliding down the side of a 12 story building
- 360 feet in total length
- Free fall Body Slide
- Some say this is the scariest ride in all of Orlando
- Part of the drop is in total darkness while shooting through a tube
- This ride looks like a ski jump from the bottom
- Digital Stop Clock Shows your speed at the bottom
There is also another large, very different Speed Slide at the same location, the Slush Gusher. If you are not sure if you want to drop straight down 120 feet right away, this is a great ride to get your feet wet. The Slush Gusher is still a speed slide but it breaks up the drops with 2 mounds along the way. What a unique design. You actually feel weightless before you flow over the top of each drop. Slush Gusher is a great water slide and most everyone will want to give this one a try.
- 90 Foot Drop
- Still, 9 Stories is pretty high
- Travel along 2 Rolling Hills to keep the speed down but also has multiple drop points
- If you look at Summit Plummet and feel you are not quite ready, try this one a couple of times first
- You will catch “air” as you go over the 2 hills
- Height Requirement – 48 inches
For a great Family Water Rapids ride, you can’t beat the Teamboat Springs. You have probably been on these family raft rides before but this one is a little different because you can fit up to 6 people in each one of the large rafts. Each time you add another member, it changes the weight in the raft which in turn changes the way that you ride down this 1,200-foot behemoth of a rapid ride. Most of us feel more comfortable riding with people that we know but the more you have in your raft, the more fun Teamboat Springs becomes.
- 1,200 Feet of Wide Water Rapids
- Rafts designed for up to 6 people – Be prepared to take on extra people if your party is smaller than 4 – This is done to keep the ride moving at a better pace and keep the lines down
- Raft Rolls up on Banks to create sprays of water
- Height Requirement – Any Height can ride
