'Miss Fortune Falls' Family Raft Ride Coming To Disney's Typhoon Lagoon In 2017
Get ready to embark on a high seas adventure at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park on a new family-friendly water attraction opening next spring.
Located near Crush ‘n’ Gusher, Miss Fortune Falls brings to life the story of the fictitious Captain Mary Oceaneer, a treasure-hunting heroine who got stranded at Typhoon Lagoon years ago by a rogue storm.
Once aboard their treasure rafts awaiting them at the ride’s entry point, guests will embark on a journey through Captain Oceaneer’s past before plunging into a white-water adventure where guests can see unique artifacts that she collected on her many treasure hunts around the world.
“We’re thrilled to add to our menu of great guest experiences at Disney’s Water Parks with Miss Fortune Falls,” said Faron Kelley, vice president of ESPN Wide World of Sports, Disney’s Water Parks & Miniature Golf. “We believe this new attraction will quickly become a favorite with our guests, who are always looking for new ways to enjoy our parks.”
With a ride time of two minutes, Miss Fortune Falls will be among the lengthiest at any Disney water park.
Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon is a 60-acre themed water park inspired by the legend of a typhoon, earthquake and volcanic eruption combining to create an inland sea with break waves and a towering watershed mountain atop which is a stranded shrimp boat.
