A new splash at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon:
Get ready to make a big splash at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon! It was recently announced that the water park would be welcoming a brand new attraction next spring. ‘Miss Fortune Falls’ will be an exciting raft attraction suitable for the whole family. You’ll get to know Captain Mary Oceaneer and hear all about her past. On the hunt for treasure, she ventured far and wide across the sea before a rogue storm left her stranded at Typhoon Lagoon.
Follow in the Captain’s footsteps as your board your very own treasure raft and ascend to the peak of the attraction before plummeting into a thrilling white water adventure. Look out for the breath-taking ancient treasures collected from all over the world as you go. Your ride experience will last for 2 minutes, making Miss Fortune Falls one of the longest duration rides at the Disney water parks. An official opening date has not yet been announced, but make sure you keep checking our blog for all of the latest details.

The relaunch of The Incredible Hulk Coaster:

After closing for refurbishment in September last year, the coaster was finally relaunched on 4th August. An eager crowd gathered to get the first glimpse of the striking coaster, guarded by an enormous figure of the legend himself.
If you’re a fan of the Incredible Hulk Coaster, don’t worry, the track you know and love has been kept the same, so you can still enjoy the exhilarating inversions and high speeds! So what’s new? The revamped ride has an all-new immersive story, new gleaming ride vehicles, a new entrance and an intriguing new queue experience. Prepare to enter a state -of-the-art military research compound, where you’ll pass through high-tech laboratories before undergoing the terrifying ‘Hulk-a-fication’ process! If you’re a thrill seeker, this ride is simply unmissable!
