The largest, and the newest, attraction at the park is the Crush N Gusher water coaster, placed in the Hideaway Bay section, and themed around the abandoned tropical fruit processing center. The ride is also recognized as unique to North America, featuring two and three person rafts, and three different slides, including Coconut Crusher, Banana Blaster, and Pineapple Plunger, that range from 125m to 128m long. In each section you will be taken to spillways and tunnels through turns and twists as you slide towards the plunge into Hideaway Bay.
Among other attractions of Typhoon Lagoon are Humunga Kowabunga, three enclosed flumes, throwing riders down five stories into the pool in a few seconds; Gang Plank Falls, a family-friendly water slide with four-person inner tubes; Storm Slides, three enclosed water slides from the height of three stories; Castaway Creek, a tube ride, stretching throughout the entire park and passing through mist screens and waterfalls; Shark Reef, which allows guests to snorkel through the saltwater tank with sharks, manta rays, and tropical fish; and two single-rider tube rides, Keelhaul Falls and Mayday Falls.
Kids are offered the play area, Ketchakiddee Creek, with small rides and fountains, while more experienced riders can take advantage of the thrill ride, Crush N Gusher, with a one-person raft taken through drop-offs and hairpin turns. Available at one of the world's largest wave pools, Typhoon Lagoon, are surfing lessons and gear.
Located near the park's entrance, a gift shop features Disney souvenirs and such beach accessories as swimwear, sunglasses, and sunscreen. For fine dining, consider Leaning Palms, Surf Doggies, Typhoon Tilly's, Happy Landings, and Snack Shack, selling full meals and snacks, in addition to Disney treats, such as Mickey Mouse ice cream bars and basted turkey drumsticks.
As you enter Typhoon Lagoon, you'll walk along a path up a hill, passing an old beach patrol station wagon with some live macaws. From the top of the rise it is possible to see the former Placid Palms Resort, with its storm damaged buildings, Singapore Sal's Beachwear, Castaway Creek, and Gifts and Sundries.
One-day Typhoon Lagoon tickets can be purchased from the Walt Disney Company or, as an alternative, you can include the attraction in the Magic Your Way ticket. The latter is available with a PLUS feature, allowing you to visit Blizzard Beach, Pleasure Island, Typhoon Island, Disney Quest, and Wide World of Sports. The length of the Magic Your Way ticket determines the number of your PLUS choices, which can be used either at different attractions or by visiting Typhoon Lagoon every time you want.
