Blizzard Beach’s Runoff Rapids Closed for Refurbishment at Walt Disney World

Runoff Rapids is a tube ride at Disney’s Blizzard Beach.  The attraction consists of 3 different slides to choose from, which you ride down on a tube.  There are single and double tubes so that small riders can ride with an adult, too.  The double tubes are allowed on 2 of the slides are that are more open, while only a single tube is allowed on the slide that is enclosed. We have confirmed that this attraction is now closed until further noticed for a refurbishment.  Disney has not specified when the attraction is expected to re-open.

The entire water park was just closed for a few days due to cold weather, and Runoff Rapids didn’t re-open when the rest of the park did.  Disney’s other water park, Typhoon Lagoon is completely closed for refurbishment and expected to re-open in a couple of months.  We will let you know when we learn more about this refurbishment and when the attraction will be back in operation.
