I too think Typhoon Lagoon is better, It has a wider variety of things and seems more relaxing to me. We enjoy both, but when we go in 38 days (yippee!!) we have 3 water park days planned and 2 of those will be Typhoon Lagoon.

I prefer blizzard beach. The starting point for a lot of the rides are semi-centralized. TL is more spread out. But it does have the crushin'gusher which is a really fun ride.

Thanks for the help.

Is Blizzard Beach more about thrill slides?

And TL is more about relaxing with fewer big rides?


Do the parks have an equal number of water slides? Is Blizzard Beach the park with the tallest or fastest ride?

I think TL is more relaxing.

Blizzard Beacj has the tallest/fastest ride, that being Summit Plummit. But Typhoon Lagoon has a comperable slide, it's just not as tall. I think the general consensus is that BB is more about the thrill rides, but TL has it's share of those as well.

One thing TL has that BB doesn't is the CrushNGusher. It's a waterslide rollercoaster. You actually go uphill in spots.

TL's wave pool accomodates a lot more people than BB, so I think BB is definitely more of a slide place.

Another difference is that at BB you don't carry your tubes/mats up with you, where at Typhoon you do. It's not a big deal, but I've overheard people complain about it.

Yeah, it can be a bit of a nightmare sometimes, esp when you're trying to cart the big round tube up the steps and you're only 5ft 1!!!

I used to think I would hate TL and would always love BB because I LOVE water slides! The first year we went to Orlando, we went to Wet 'n' Wild, and I had to ride most rides by myself while my mum and sister sat by the pool and sunbathed/went in the wave pool.

However, last trip we took our first trip to TL, and while the rides are slower and more leisurely, I actually preferred the park because it my mum and sister were riding the slides with me, rather than me running around on my own. So it definitely has a better 'family' feel to it because there is stuff for everyone to do. The wave pool at TL is just THE BEST as well!!!

We have several days at each of the parks planned this year, and I have persuaded my mum to try and attempt Summit Plummet with me! We were going to do it last year, but were at the park at the end of the day, and by the time we got into the chairlift queue, having worked up the courage, they closed it for the night
