The park is home to one of the world’s largest outdoor wave pools, that also features slides, flumes, and wet and play spaces for every age and member of the family.
“Known for its immersive storytelling, thrilling water attractions and family fun, the Typhoon Lagoon tells the fabled tale of a rogue storm and its ensuing tidal wave that wreaked havoc on a formerly pristine waterside paradise,” Disney described in a news release. “From topsy-turvy architecture and storm-strewn nautical gear to the stranded shrimping ship, Miss Tilly, impaled upon the summit of Mount Mayday, each detail brings the legend to life for guests in different ways.”
The park has been closed to guests since March 15, 2020, the day Disney closed its parks due to the coronavirus pandemic.
News 6 flew over Typhoon Lagoon last week to see the park being setup for guests ahead of the reopening.
