The story goes that there was once an idyllic tropical village not too far from the site that would eventually become Pleasure 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 atop 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.

Today, you can enjoy a great variety of wet and wild attractions including:

Crush "N" Gusher
A unique water roller coaster that sends you hurtling down (and amazingly, up!) tubes in specially designed rafts. You'll be propelled through twists and turns, tunnels and spillways as you slip and slide towards the final plunge into Hideaway Bay.

Humunga Kowabunga
Three enclosed speed slide flumes that send you racing five stories down for a final plunge into the pool below.

Storm Slides
Three more enclosed water slides, a bit tamer than their bigger and badder cousins.

Gang Plank Falls
A waterslide for the whole family with large four-person inner tubes.

Mayday Falls and Keelhaul Falls
Two single-rider tubes.

Castaway Creek
A relaxing lazy river ride that passes through gentle waterfalls and refreshing misting screens.

Ketchakiddee Creek
A play area for younger kids featuring small slides and fountains.

Typhoon Lagoon
The world's largest wave pool, where gentle swells quickly build into eight foot waves. Surfing gear and lessons are also available daily before the park opens to the public.

Shark Reef
Snorkel through a saltwater tank that's home to manta rays, sharks and tropical fish.

You'll also discover a sandy white beach that wraps around Typhoon Lagoon, perfect for relaxing or working on that perfect tan!
