And, though Typhoon Lagoon doesn't boast the longest, tallest, or fastest water slides, all of them are beautiful, taking you through wonderfully landscaped mountain streams, which have been cut into the Mt. Mayday's volcanic slopes. The left slopes of Mt. Mayday feature three raft slides, Keelhaul Falls, Gang Plank Falls, and Mayday Falls, while numerous body slides can be found on the right slopes.
Being one of the most popular in Typhoon Lagoon, Crush N Gusher is also one of the newest attractions, introduced in March 2005.
