“Sun, Sand and Sea!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

We visited Typhoon Lagoon on a Saturday afternoon, as we have a two year old who needs a mid morning nap. I thought it would be so busy, but actually the time we went (around 2pm) was great. Although the park closes at 5pm, the three hours we spent there was enough time to relax, and enjoy all that the park has to offer. Firstly, the staff here are really friendly and we even got a discount on locker rental as we arrived later in the day. We paid $7 for a large locker as we had the usual diaper/nappy bag etc. it's normally $15 but you get $5 back when you return your key, so we really only paid $2. We headed straight to the locker and as we were already wearing our costumes, we were quickly in the water. There is a lot of soft sand around the park, and my little girl loved playing in it. A lot of kids were building sandcastles and there were a lot of chairs that were empty as the park was not at all crowded. There is a great wave pool which activates every two minutes or so and a giant wave comes crashing to shore. Even little kids can enjoy this as long as you hold onto them. The only downside is the flooring, as its quite rough, so you are better going a little deeper into the water to avoid scraping your skin. We were having so much fun in the waves, that both myself and my husband were swept in and our backs are sore this morning after scraping them on the ground. We still enjoyed it though! There is also a great kids section with a mini water slide and mini rubber rings for them to go down on. So cute! We actually returned to the park on Sunday as well and tried the food there. We only thought they did the usual hot dogs, pizza and fries, but realized after we had ordered that there are also sandwiches and salad available. The pizza and fries were good though. All in all, we had a great time and would definitely return to typhoon lagoon!

“just...well...sorta meh ;(”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

The lazy river would have been much easier to be lazy in, had it not been like full of tree pieces, and floating leaves.....a skimmer here and there woulda been nice. There were some neat misty parts, and the flow was pretty good...beware of the water birds....except they are not dropping water....and there are like 30 of these birds in one tree RIGHT OVER the lazy river....DUCK DUCK...awe man you just goosed!

We wished quickly that we had gone to blizzard beach....

Relaxing, for a few hours than sorta....boring really.

Expensive. Boring. A bit dirty....haha...

Lunch was good though...we had the home made chips, very large turkey sandwich, kids at the burgers, we also tried a few bites of the HUGE funnel cake with ice cream.

The wave pool, awesome, the wave was no joke...however, as a nurse....I was on hyper alert for some kind of slam into each other trauma.... you had the no fears at the top of the pool, body surfing their way through the crowd of youngin's holding on for dear life.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

It's fun to visit Typhoon Lagoon,
Just having a cool swim during a hot day makes it a while
Average size park with some rides, mostly based on kids.
But if your out to have a good time , head to typhoon lagoon and hit the slides

The environment that you walk into at typhoon lagoon sweeps you away. The landscaping is amazing and you really do feel like you are in the tropics for the day. Swimming with the sharks is awesome!
