Blizzard Beach is a water park located at the Walt Disney World Resort

The park opened on April 1, 1995 and was the third WDW water park after River Country and Typhoon Lagoon. The theme of the park is the “Disney legend” of a freak snowstorm in the area, leading to the construction of Florida’s first ski resort. Naturally, the snow didn’t last long, leaving behind a collection of waterlogged but snow-less ski jumps and chair lifts.

“Ice Gator”

The failed resort was in the process of closing for good when an alligator was seen sliding down a flume and splashing into a pool of water, screaming “Yahoo!” Thus the “ski resort” was reborn as a water park, with the alligator named “Ice Gator” as mascot.

1.89 million Guests

In 2008, the park hosted approximately 1.89 million guests, ranking it the second-most visited water park in the world, behind its sister park, Typhoon Lagoon.

Mount Gushmore

The majority of the major attractions at the park are hosted atop of Mount Gushmore, an artificial hill with an elevation of 90 feet (27 m); making it the fifth highest point in Florida Mount Gushmore is split into three colored slopes to aid guests navigating around the park: Green, Red and Purple.

The “Mountain” also serves to hide the park’s pipes.

All water areas are heated! At approximately 80 degrees Fahrenheit, with the exception of the melting snow in the ice cave of Cross Country Creek.
