Disney have recently announced that a new ride named Miss Fortune Falls will open at Typhoon Lagoon in the Spring of 2017.
The 2 minute family-friendly raft ride will be built next to Crush ‘n’ Gusher, and will be one of the longest water rides at Disney’s water parks.
“We’re thrilled to add to our menu of great guest experiences at Disney’s Water Parks with Miss Fortune Falls,” said Faron Kelley, vice president of ESPN Wide World of Sports, Disney’s water parks and miniature golf.
“We believe this new attraction will quickly become a favorite with our guests, who are always looking for new ways to enjoy our parks,” Kelley said.
The back story of the ride will feature Capt. Mary Oceaneer, a treasure hunter stranded at Typhoon Lagoon after the storm hit that shaped the park into what it is today (fictitious). Visitors will be able to float through the Captain’s past and see artefacts she collected on her many treasure hunts.
