Attractions :

  • Cast Away Creek
  • Surf Pool - with six foot waves that hit every 90 seconds
  • Upside down Boat - Walk inside see fish from portholes
  • Beautiful Tropical "Island"

  • Mountain Trail is the only dry attraction at Typhoon its elevated walkway that highlights the beautiful park and get closer view of shipwreck  Miss Tilly


Not For Me :

  • Crush & Gusher - coaster life raft ride with dips and turns two slides of three slide requires two people one slide does not

  • Humunga Kowabunga - Plummet down MayDay Falls - enclosed body slide is most intense ride sends riders five stories down a near vertical slope.  At the end of the rides you skid into a horizontal shoot and its been stated as awful as you come down incredibly fast and such force you bruise your bum a bit.

  • Gang Plank Falls  Family Raft Ride seats two to four people and you have to carry the  huge raft up the stairs to start of ride

  • Keelhaul Falls Tube Ride Fast and smooth

  • Storm Slide  Body Slide you lay flat on your back ride three stories down sharp twists and turns . Note the middle slide has a tunnel portion that is in the dark part of the time .  You feel every bump so it isn't the most comfortable ride


  • MayDay Falls  Single Rider Tube Slide - Highest and longest waterslide but has been noted to be the worst because every few feet you hit speed bumps that you fly over and bumps are really sharp and it takes a lot of effort to hold on to the tube all the way down. The tube for this ride has a front and back and is labeled clearly and its important you keep the tube with the front label on the front of the ride which can be a bit challenging.
