The Storm Slides offer an adventurous slide down Mount Mayday at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon. Thankfully, these slides are not near as intimidating as some of the other high-speed attractions at the park.
This article will provide specifics on what to expect with the Storm Slides. Since the Storm Slides don’t have a height requirement, they are fun for almost everyone.
Additionally, these are body slides, so there are no inner tubes involved.
You’ll find the Storm Slides on the right-hand side of Mount Mayday behind the Surf Pool. Usually, a wait time is posted near the entrance to the attraction.
The slides are located directly next door to Humunga Kowabunga, a trio of body slides with a five-story drop.
Don’t worry. The Storm Slides are mild compared to their neighbor. They are so mild that even I will ride them.
The walk up to the top is relatively straightforward. There are clusters of steps with multiple landings along the way.
I usually stick to the side and let the younger kids pass me on the way up. There’s no need to wear yourself out before getting to the fun part.
The Storm Slides travel three stories down Mount Mayday in a fun, curvy way. You’ll slide through small caves and gentle waterfalls on your way down.
There are three different Storm Slides to choose from when you get to the top. They are:
- Jib Jammer
- Stern Burner
- Rudder Buster
At the top, a cast member will instruct you to sit down at the slide entrance. Then a red light will change to green, and it’s your turn to go.
Here is a look at the exit. The pool at the bottom of the slide is 4′ deep, so you’ll need to be able to stand up or swim out of it on your own.
For me, it takes a second to get my bearings and plant my feet firmly on the ground.
Overall, I like the Storm Slides better than the tube slides. They are smooth on the way down, and you don’t have to worry about getting high on the sides and flipping out.
However, these slides are reasonably fast. Make sure not to drag your feet to slow yourself down. If you do, you will end up in pain.
And always remember to wear water park shoes. They are essential for spending the day at a water park.
Lastly, there is a place to sit at the bottom of the Storm Slides. It’s a good waiting place for those who don’t care to participate.
