“Fantastic!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

A great place to spend a sunny day. Lots of areas to sit or layout to tan. Food prices were reasonable. Water slides and wave pool are well maintained and very clean. Good for smaller children as well as adults. The whole family will have fun here. They provide life jackets and you can rent beach towels for cheap.

“My favourite water park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

I am not a fan of Wet n Wild or Aquatica. I like Blizzard Beach but I love Typhoon Lagoon. I like how its a smaller park and you don't have to walk too far to get round the park, everything is quite close. We always grab a few beds and chairs right infront of the main wave pool, there is a shallower (ankle deep) pool here also - this is excellent in the afternoon when its really hot as you can pop your chair in the water and sit there to cool off :)
The family raft ride at Typhoon is pretty poor, there is always a long queue for such a short ride. I'd love this to be so much longer but its not. It seems to be over in seconds.
Swimming with the sharks is pretty cool - the water is freezing and salty so be prepared!
The new slides - Crush 'n' Gusher - are tube only slides. I had friends go on this and came out the tube and got hurt. The bottom of this slide is not smooth, it has runners to boost you as toy go down so whatever you do DON'T come out your tube!
One other thing to look out for is the ground in the wave pool, its so rough so try not fall in shallow waters or scrape your toes as it stings. I guess it needs to be like this to stop people slipping?

“Hold on tight!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

The big way there is no joke, my son was shocked when it happened. We really enjoyed this water park. The high light for us was snorkeling with the sharks. With all that being said we enjoyed blizzard beach much more.

“Amazing water park, must see!”

Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach are the best water parks in the world. Typhoon Lagoon is tropical and beautiful and the slides are great for people of all ages. The snorkeling experience is terrific also.
