Tuesday, November 16, 2004 2:54 PM
Hey guys!!

GREAT NEWS!!! At today's SGE press event (officially open now, by the way), a Tyhpoon Lagoon expansions was announced. The addition of Crush 'N' Gusher!! C 'N' C will consist of 3 water coasters that zoom in and out of a old tropical fruit themed plant that fits in with the "Typhoon Lagoon" theme. The names of the slides will be Banana Blaster, Coconut Crusher, and Pinneapple Plunger. All three slides will have different turns, slopes, and drops and range from 410 to 420 feet in length.

More can be read here http://www.wdwmagic.com/around.htm

Can't wait to go back to TL ;)

Very nice. I wonder if any more new attractions are in the works for Typhoon Lagoon or Blizzard Beach? It sure looks like this new slide complex will be a huge draw for Typhoon Lagoon and should help to take some of the crowd pressure of Blizzard Beach.

Typhoon Lagoon has already spoiled me for other waterparks, and now they're getting a Master Blaster!

Granted I haven't been to Schlitterbahn, or Water World in Denver, but I haven't been happy with any other waterpark since going to TL a few years ago. PKI's Boomerang Bay was a huge disappointment to me after they hyped the themeing so much and then didn't come close to matching the hype.

Blizzard Beach is right up there too but I do love the Shark Encounter at Typhoon Lagoon. It is a beautiful park.

The Shark Encounter is what makes Typhoon Lagoon the best waterpark ever in my book. Add to that the best wave pool I have ever experienced and you have a far and away winner. Master Blasters will be a great addition!

What also sets TL apart from any other waterpark and ranks #1 on my list is the Humonga Cowabunga (traditional 70 ft. free fall but in the dark in the side of a mountain) and their Lazy River is AWESOME! Plus, they have the best wave pool ever, and the Shark Reef is a great experience! :)

From the concept art, it looks like the new slides aren't as well-integrated into the faux mountainsides as everything else at Typhoon Lagoon. Nonetheless, it's an exciting addition.

Wow, there was talk of a water coaster coming but three! Awesome! I purposely put off going to the park this year because of the expansion (did Blizzard Beach instead and had a blast) and am even more excited now to check it out. Looks like a great waterpark and it's only getting better.

Do we know for sure that this is an NBGS Master Blaster? There are at least two other companies that now make uphill water coasters.

And what is an SGE press event?

Oh, sorry about that...

SGE stands for "Stitch's Great Escape" which opened today. At the event they announced the TL expansion, additions to the Living Seas, and officially opened the attraction. "Stitch" also toilet papered the caslte :-) hehe. Pictures of this are at WDWMagic as well.

Kyle Fobe...I believe you're talking about River Country? Well, it was holding it's own nicely when Typhoon Lagoon was it's only Disney compitition. People could start their day over at Discovery Island, ride the boat back and River Country wasn't too far from where the boat dropped you back off, then you could do the HooptyDoo Review for dinner. Well, Discovery Island has since closed if I'm not mistaken, though it was really cool while it was open. HooptyDoo isn't advertised nearly as much unless you stay at Fort Wilderness (the campground), and Blizzard River and Typhoon Lagoon are much bigger draws for the teens, so River Country current clintel is mostly people staying at Fort Wilderness and those looking for just a relaxing "day at the ol' swimmin' hole." At least I think it's still open...I remember seeing a sign for it at EPCOT last time I was there but I haven't been to River Country for at least 8 years now... *** Edited 11/16/2004 11:02:08 PM UTC by Coaster Lover***

I guess I was using the term generically... (Something the legal dept. at NBGS probably wouldn't appreciate )

The waterparks in Disney are by far superior to any others that I have experienced. I love both Blizzard Beach & Typhoon Lagoon. Great times!

Help me out here please...is this a "water coaster" as in Journey to Atlantis type coaster? Or something similar to a one-man bobsled kind of coaster? Why is it even called a coaster?

The Master Blaster uses powerful water jets to propel riders in rafts up hills as well as gravity to travel down. Schlitterbahn in Texas got the first Master Blaster and it has been one of the most popular water park attractions ever. Cedar Point's Castaway Bay just opened and included an indoor Master Blaster.
