Gangplank Falls at Typhoon Lagoon

Gangplank Falls is a waterslide attraction at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon. This attraction is similar to a white water rafting adventure where multiple guests share an oversized inner tube.

This article will go over the details for Gangplank Falls. The waterslide is located on the back left-hand side of the park near Ketchakiddee Creek, the park’s dedicated toddler area.

Gangplank Falls sits among neighboring Mayday Falls and Keelhaul Falls. It is considered a family raft ride.

There is no height requirement for Gangplank Falls. However, this attraction requires multiple guests ride together in an innertube.

At the base of the attraction, you’ll pick up a raft to carry with you to the top. Unfortunately, the rafts are heavy and difficult to maneuver.

Below you see the end of the slide where guests are waiting to pick up a raft.

When my son was younger, it was tough for me to tackle getting the raft up to the top by myself. Had there been another adult, it wouldn’t have been so bad.

But as a single parent, I can tell you we only rode this attraction a few times. It just wasn’t worth the extra effort.

The description for Gangplank Falls says you’ll get swept away by rushing rapids aboard a multi-person tube. It’s important to note the waterslide is only 300 feet long, which isn’t long for a family raft ride.

So if you haven’t experienced Gangplank Falls and the line isn’t long, try it. But I wouldn’t necessarily say it’s a deal-breaker if you miss it.

Overall, Gangplank Falls is one of those attractions that’s over before you know it. And those rafts are pretty heavy.
