Blizzard Beach

Terror at Disney World!

Terror at Disney World! (Or why I don't do water slides any more)

Have you ever experienced genuine terror while on a theme park ride?

I have, and I'm not talking about the fun "fear" you get on Disney’s “Tower of Terror” or the vertical drop on “Oblivion” either. I’m talking about real, honest to goodness, "Sweet baby Jeebus, I am about to die!" terror.

I was with some friends at Blizzard Beach in Walt Disney World, Orlando and after some lazing around in the tubes and riding some of the easier slides we decided it was time to tackle Summit Plummet, one of the tallest, fastest, water slides in the world.
