Captain Mary Oceaneer was a collector and protector of nautical treasures the world over. Mostly a collector though. During an expedition to the far reaches of the ocean, Captain Mary was stranded during a storm, along with her parrot. They ended up at Typhoon Lagoon, and have been there ever since. Beginning March 12th, guests at Typhoon Lagoon can board a raft and wind past Mary’s Wrecked ship, where they’ll see and hear her talking parrot.
From there, it gets pretty amazing as you won’t have to venture up a ton of steps. In a first for a Florida waterpark, guests will be able to venture up the lift hill while they are in their raft. If you’ve been to a waterpark, you know that the stairs are very tiring, so this ends up being a very welcomed change.
Also, according to Disney, Miss Adventure Falls is the first part of the Typhoon Lagoon expansion, or at least it seems as Disney says “as part of an expansion at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.” Could there be more coming in the next few years? With Universal Orlando’s Volcano Bay on the horizon, as well as Great Wolf Lodge moving in very soon, it could be a distinct possibility.
Still, Miss Adventure Falls will be the longest ride at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon and the first new ride since the park opened Crush n Gusher in 2005.
