Top 7 things you should do at Blizzard Beach, Walt Disney World

The water parks in Walt Disney World often get forgotten about, they're not visited as often as the other parks and to be honest I think if you don' visit at least one of the water parks, either Typhoon Lagoon or Blizzard Beach, you're missing out. With that in mind, and as a way to entice you, here's 7 things you should do at Blizzard Beach.

Top 7 Things You Should Do At Blizzard Beach, Walt Disney World | Get excited as you enter the best place in the world, Blizzard Beach.
I always get excited when I walk towards this entrance.

Teamboat Springs

The first ride we always head to when we visit Blizzard Beach, is Teamboat Springs - a family raft ride that is full of twists and turns to keep you smiling all the way down. There aren't any sudden drops, you do see them all coming, but the turns keep you on your toes, and there's usually a big splash at the end. It's become somewhat of a tradition for us to go on Teamboat Springs first, so much so that my boys head straight there when we go to Blizzard Beach!

Toboggan Racers

Hop aboard a mat and race down the slide alongside your family and friends. There are 8 slides next to each other and you can race amongst yourselves or race other people too. We love Toboggan Racers and LP always asks to ride, he loves the fact that we can race each other. Be prepared for being splashed in the face as you get to the bottom, but it is lots of fun.

I could float in the pool for hours, just letting the water carry me.

Snow Stormers

Using the same mats you use on Toboggan Racers these slides are different in that they are winding. It's not a straight slide to the bottom, you speed around corners and down hills before splashing into a pool at the bottom. There's lots of splashes to the face, but it's lots of fun and the splash at the end isn't too bad - you just float across the pool towards the steps. Definitely one to try.

Runoff Rapids

With a choice of 3 different slides you're sure to have fun at Runoff Rapids. Grab a ring at the bottom and head up the steps to make your choice. There's one 'open' slide and two are tubes, but they're all winding and filled with dips, so you'll have some fun. My favourite has to be the first closed slide, there are turns and dips (and plenty of screaming), but as you splash into the pool at the end you're filled with adrenaline and you'll have a huge smile on your face!

Summit Plummet

If you like body slides none top the Summit Plummet - according to my boys. I won't dare go on Summit Plummet but my boys love it and take any opportunity they can to ride. It is basically a huge body slide with one large drop, definitely one for the thrill-seekers in your party.

I've never braved it, but the boys love Summit Plummet.

Slush Gusher

Much like the Summit Plummet this is a body slide, only this slide is more like Toboggan Racers rather than just one drop. Again my boys enjoy this slide and look forward to it every time. The drops aren't as big as Summit Plummet so if you want to work up to the big slide it's a good start.

I will do water - beautiful, blue water.

Cross Country Creek

One of my favourite places is relaxing in a ring on Cross Country Creek!

After all the excitement of the slides and raft rides you're going to want to chill out, and what better way than to sit in an inflatable ring as you float along Cross Country Creek. This lazy river is THE BEST way to relax in Blizzard Beach despite there being plenty of seats and loungers on the 'beach'. You float along the river nicely until you reach a tunnel, which if you're unlucky you'll end up going under a waterfall where tons of water land on your head! But it's all good fun, because when you emerge from the tunnel the sun will be shining and you'll dry off again in no time. 

Oh, and don't forget to look out for the Ice Gator!

While Typhoon Lagoon is my boys' favourite water park Blizzard Beach is mine, there are more rides I enjoy as well as the lazy river being more relaxing.
