Disney Blizzard Beach water park is themed after a ski resort where a freak snowstorm hit. While it might look chilly, this Disney water park is warm all year!
The focal point of Disney’s Blizzard Beach is Summit Plummet which stands at 120 feet and sends you free-falling at speeds 60 miles per hour.
It is the second-tallest and fastest free-fall water slide in the world!
While you can walk all the way to the top, there is a second way to get to the ride.
Blizzard Beach has a chair lift that will take you to the upper area of the park.
