Doesn't Look Like a Blizzard
Water Park Photo Gallery
Blizzard Beach is a highly themed water park with a wildly inventive high concept: A freak Florida snowstorm inspired Walt Disney World to build a ski resort; when the snow abruptly melted, it transformed the ski runs into water slides. Take a tour of the unique, attraction-packed park.

It'll Sleigh You
The whimsical touches--a snow sleigh against the backdrop of palm trees--begin at the entrance to the park.
This Creek Don't Rise
The Cross Country Creek lazy river travels around the outside edge of Blizzard Beach.
A Blizzard of Flowers
While not as lush as Typhoon Lagoon (Walt Disney World's other water park), Blizzard Beach does have some lovely landscaping.
A Tike Heads to Tike's Peak
While it has perhaps the most thrilling water park slide in the world, Blizzard Beach also offers slides and attractions for younger folks in Tike's Peak.
The chairlift that once brought skiers to the top of the mountain now brings sliders to the top of Mount Gushmore and the 120-foot tall Summit Plummet water slide. Lines can get quite long for the chairlift. There is an optional path to walk up to Mount Gushmore as well.
As the chairlift takes riders up to Mount Gushmore, a blast of water indicates that a brave soul just plummeted down Summit Plummet.
Summit Plummet is one of the world's tallest (120 feet), steepest (nearly 90 degrees), and fastest (up to 60 MPH) water slides, and is perhaps the most intense thrill ride at Walt Disney World.
Blizzard Beach guests can test their mettle on a second speed slide, the Slush Gusher.
A Raft of Rides
Blizzard Beach offers Teamboat Springs, one of the world's longest family raft rides.
Race You to the Bottom
Eight riders on mats compete against each other on the Toboggan Racers.
Kids ride a t-bar across a zip line and drop into the water at Blizzard Beach.
There are whimsical details throughout the park such as this ski conditions board.
