|The story goes that there
was once an idyllic tropical village not
too far from the site that would eventually
Island. Unfortunately, the
mythical Hurricane Connie that devastated
Pleasure Island also wreaked it's havoc on
this quiet village. Surfboards were embedded
in the trees; boat parts and navigation buoys
ended up in the roofs of the damaged huts.
And most shockingly of all, a tiny shrimp
boat, the Miss Tilly, was flung
up into the air and left precariously perched
the volcano in the heart of the village,
Mount Mayday. Newly created waterfalls carved
long channels down the mountainside, and
the peaceful bay was turned into a sea of
unending crashing waves.
Thus, the legend of Typhoon Lagoon was born.
Opening in 1989, Typhoon Lagoon featured
the largest man-made watershed mountain in
the world and offered a one-of-a-kind water
complex that featured a wide range of activities
including snorkeling, swimming, surfing,
floating and sliding.

wet and wild attractions including:
