Plenty of Space
Once we get to our seating area we organise ourselves and then go straight for a leisurely ride on the Lazy River which goes around the outside of the Park, this is a very safe area with lifeguards situated all around.
Lazy River never loses its Magic and is such a relaxing way to start your visit to Typhoon Lagoon or just to go on it to cool off during the heat of the afternoon. You can get on or off at several locations around the park and you can also choose how you want to travel. There are single or double tubes you just grab which ever you want and off you go. Often parents like to walk round pushing their little ones in their tube. My Mother often walks around just leaning on a tube as she seems to have a knack of falling out of her own! You must be prepared to get wet as water is squirted out at you at various points on your journey.
We usually get off the Lazy River as near as we can to the Happy Landings Ice Cream shop not only to get ice cream but also to avoid the water that gets squirted outside the shop to the amusement of the customers waiting to be served! Here we always have the Garbage Pail which costs about $10 and is great for a family to share. It comes in a bucket with a small spade and comprises chocolate and vanilla ice cream and cookies as well as chocolate sauce hot fudge sauce strawberry sauce all topped off with a mountain of cream and nuts. Just behind the shop you will find a large seating area with tables that you can eat your ice cream.
You will find it very easy to navigate this park as it is very well signposted everywhere.
After our ice cream we decided not to go on any rides for a while so we headed for Shark Reef. My Mother is not keen on snorkelling so she became a spectator where she is allowed to enter a tanker and see the undersea creatures through the ships portholes. Anyone of any height can snorkel here although children under 10 years old must be accompanied by an adult. Snorkels, masks and life jackets are provided free of charge and it really is a great snorkelling experience that I would recommend, the girls even went back later in the day to have another go!
