I just tried it with my family this past weekend and I have to say that when it comes to family slides, this is definitely our new favorite!
First of all, this water slide has an adorable storyline. According to the tale: World-famous oceanographer and member of the Society of Explorers and Adventurers (S.E.A), Captain Mary made it her goal to sail the seven seas and collect treasures to share with the rest of the world. Typhoon Lagoon became the home to Captain Mary’s ship after a rogue typhoon swept it and some of her artifacts to shore, where the locals then repurposed the goods and statues to create this family raft adventure. It doesn’t take long for guests to get a sense that they’re heading in the right direction – the slide’s queue is detailed with shipwrecked items and even footprints from Mary’s pirate sidekick!
Then there’s the slide itself. The four-person raft whisks you on a fun downhill, whitewater voyage, passing Mary’s treasure collection as you go.
