For my spring break I'll be going to Disney World. Some friends and I want to go to one of their water parks, but I'm having a hard time choosing between the two. Blizzard Beach has the Summit Plumit and huge family raft slide. On the other hand, Hurricane Harbor has a water slide similar to Master Blaster (a slide I've never rode before) and that big wave pool. So from personal experiences, witch do ya'll think is the better one???
Negatives of Typhoon Lagoon:
-Every slide but the Master Blaster is old, and frankly not that good
Pluses of Blizzard Beach:
-Summit Plummit: The worlds tallest speed slide, also the top of the slide is the only place in the world you can see every park's icon (ie the Castle, Spaceship Earth, The Hat and the Tree of Life)
-Teamboat Springs: The longest family raft ride, quite fun
-The other slides are much, much better then Typhoon Lagoon's
-It also has a great lazy river (cant really pick a favorite in this important category)
Negatives of Blizzard Beach:
-The theming while great, can make the park quite hot mid day
-The wave pool is a standard one with very low waves
-This park fills up fast, if you get there at opening and do the big three (Summit Plummit, Teamboat Springs and Slush Gusher) and then proceed to ride the other slides you can do them all in 2 hours, which ironically is about the time youll need to wait to ride the big three the rest of the day and the other slides will all have 1 hour waits.
Its really a question of what you want: if you want slides go to BB, if you want a relaxing day full of unique experiences pick TL. Of if you are choosing this based on a time issue, you can easily do both (BB in the morning, TL in the afternoon) on the same day.
Edit-Forgot to mention my recomendation. BB is the better all around water park, but that being said its not a trip to WDW until I vist both parks and I absolutly love spending an afternoon at TL where the only two "rides" I do are the lazy river and the pool. *** Edited 2/23/2007 12:35:18 AM UTC by Touchdown***

Ask yourself if you need to swim with sharks and ride a Master Blaster -- if the answer is no, go to BB.
sws: Yea, that sounds good too, but the only reason I would want to go to Wet n Wild is for Bomb Bay... so I don't think it would be too wise for me to pay just to ride that.
Touchdown: That was perfect! Exactly what I was wanting to hear! lol I was leaning more to BB anyways, because of the slides. The main thing that was calling me to TL was the wave pool and the Master Blaster. I think the only downside will probably be how busy it is. I think next time I visit WDW I will take my girlfriend to TL since its more low key than BB.
Hanging n' Banging: Lol thanks, but I'm only 19 and don't plan on drinking... ever.
Thanks everyone for your help again! I guess I've made my choice... unless someone can give me a good reason to change to TL.
