Blizzard Beach


Blizzard Beach is a themed water recreation attraction located at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida which is spread across 66 acres. This water park opened its doors on April 1, 1995. It is actually inspired by the mythology of a snow ski resort that turned into a water park due to an unsuitable climate. Summit Plummet is the signature attraction of the park standing at 120 feet tall.  The slopes are color coded to guide the tourists. Green slopes are for the Summit Plummet, Team boat springs, and Slush Gusher. The red slope is for Runoff Rapids and the purple slopes are for the Downhill Double Dipper, Snow Stormers, and Toboggan Racers.

Quick Facts: –
