Blizzard Beach is the third water park built at Walt Disney World in Florida. Like all Disney attractions, it was built with the visitor in mind and for families of all sizes and backgrounds to enjoy. A Florida summer day at a Disney water park is a recipe for a good time and lots of memories. If you’re considering visiting Blizzard Beach, you should definitely commit – the park has a lot to offer.
Blizzard Beach is made up of a variety of colored “slopes” that run down the central point of the park: Mount Gushmore. The Green slope is home to a variety of single track water slides. These aren’t your simple, boring water slides you might have experienced at other water parks though. These are Disney-caliber slides. For example, Summit Plummet on the green slope will get your adrenaline going as you fly down 120 feet at up to 60 miles per hour. After that there are two other slides to check out!
The Purple Slope is the place you go on Mount Gushmore when you’re looking for some fun competition. The slope has three racing slides each with their own unique path and method of sliding. Bring a friend on the way up or meet someone there and race to the bottom on a fun slide! It’s a great slope for family-friendly competition too.
The last slope on Mount Gushmore is the Red Slope. This slope has only one attraction, but it’s’ an interesting one. You can ride down a multi-slide slope on inner tubes. Some are enclosed tubes and some are open tubes. The total distance of the red slope is 600 feet!
Blizzard Beach is more than just slopes though. The ground level attractions are extensive, fun, and a great time for the whole family. There’s a popular lazy river like the one in Typhoon Lagoon, as well as some great pools to relax and hang out in. There are kids pools for the youngest members of the family as well.
Blizzard Beach has a lot more to offer than you could ever imagine. There’s a reason that around two million people visit the water park every year. Add it to your itinerary during your Disney vacation and you won’t be disappointed.
