Top 10 Water Slides at Walt Disney World

Top 10 Water Slides at Walt Disney World       

There is no better way to beat the Florida heat than a dip in your resort pool or one of Disney’s fantastic waterparks.  You don’t even have to give up the “thrill” of the theme parks to cool off with all of the fun waterslides that you can find around the Walt Disney World Resort.

10.  The (Scary) Clown Slide, Boardwalk Resort 

Although projecting yourself out of the mouth of a clown may sound both scary and bizarre, the ride itself down this slide is a lot of fun.  The official name for this Luna Park slide is the “Keister Coaster,” and it is set up like an old fashioned wooden roller coaster.  The twisting trip down definitely offers some thrills.

9.  Old Port Royale Pool, Caribbean Beach Resort

The theming of this pool is outstanding.  Set in a Spanish fort in the Caribbean, the Fuentes del Morro, this pool features two slides.  The 82 foot slide that carries you through the fort, and you will feel just like a pirate of the Caribbean when you take a ride on this one!

8.  Uzima Springs Pool, Animal Kingdom Lodge

The pool at Animal Kingdom Lodge’s Jambo house is a like an oasis in the savanna—a watering hole for animals and humans alike.  It has a zero entry area, and sports a 67 foot long slide.  This is a quick slide, but not too fast that younger children can’t enjoy it too.

7.  Storm Slides, Typhoon Lagoon

These body slides are 300 feet of twisting and turning before you arrive at the bottom to see who “won” the race.  You have three choices for a different experience:  Jib Jammer, Stern Burner or Rudder Buster, but all result in a three story drop sending you zipping past tropical scenery.

6.  Toboggan Racers, Blizzard Beach

On this 8 lane slide you race your friends and some strangers on body mats to the bottom of “Mount Gushmore.”  A lifeguard at the top signals you to push yourself off to start the race.  You go over three bumps or drops over the 300 foot length of the slide.  I am sure you will be laughing at the end whether you win or lose!  And the winner buys ice cream.

5.  Jaguar Water Slide, Coronado Springs Resort

The Dig Site pool complex features a lot of fun features including a very large pool.  The primary feature is a 46 foot tall Mayan Pyramid and a spitting statue to complete the theme of an archaeological dig.  Everyone loves the Jaguar slide that twists and turns through a covered area and in the open air where you are squirted by a spitting Jaguar, hence the name.  One neat feature is the walkway that overlooks the slide so you can watch as your children (or friends) slide down.

4.  Teamboat Springs, Blizzard Beach

For me personally, this one ranks number 1.  I love riding in the big raft with my entire family and watching the kids’ faces as we go down and around and get splashed (they especially like it when I get drenched)!  But, it does lack some of the thrills of the higher choices.  You can fit up to 6 people on a raft to go down the 1200 foot slide.

3.  Flying Jib Slide, Yacht & Beach Club Resort

Stormalong Bay pool complex that is shared by Disney’s Yacht and Beach Clubs is the most elaborate on property.  As such, it has one of the premiere resort water slides.  Fitting with the theme of a storm ravaged coastal area\, you climb up the mast of a wrecked ship to begin your journey down the Flying Jib Slide.  This thrilling 230 foot slide propels you out into part of the sand bottom pool at Stormalong Bay—it is a pretty incredible ride!

2.  Crush-n-Gusher, Typhoon Lagoon

You don’t have to stay in the theme parks to ride a coaster!  The premise of this series of slides is a fruit processing plant.  The 400 foot tube slides offer you a lot of options.  There are three separate and different coasters, “Pineapple Plunger,” “Coconut Crusher” and “Banana Blaster.”  You can also choose to ride by yourself or with one or two friends (3 riders are not allowed on the Banana Blaster).  The slide actually propels you up hills, and then you plunge down, around tight turns, catch some air and go through some areas of darkness.  You really can’t beat Crush-n-Gusher for the combination of thrills and water.  You must be 48 inches or taller to enjoy this slide.

1.  Summit Plummet, Blizzard Beach

You have to have some guts to try this one.  The landmark attraction at Blizzard Beach is accessible by climbing many steps or by taking the chair lift then finishing the climb – there is a great view up there.  Then hold on to your swim suit as you literally plummet down a near vertical 12 story drop.  As I said, this is not for the faint of heart, and you must be 48 inches or taller to take the plunge.  This one earns its place as number 1 by being one of the tallest slides of its kind.

What is your favorite water slide when you are looking to keep seeking thrills and get wet?
