Triple your pleasure by riding one of these three speed slides that send adventurers zooming in a blaze of water to a splashy surprise ending. Whip downhill -- dropping five stories in seconds -- in these enclosed flumes, where you can't see where you're going until you get there! Zoinks!
Humunga Kowabunga consists of three enclosed speed rides that drop five stories as they wind through rock caverns inside of Mount Mayday along the 214-foot slide!
The average speed is 30 mph; however, you can really fly if you lie flat on your back, cross your ankles, wrap your arms around your chest, and arch your back. Just remember to smile for the rubberneckers on the grandstand at the bottom.
Are you a thrill seeker? Do you like going fast? If so, Humunga Kowabunga is the ride for you. Guests can find this popular attraction on the right side of the park, next to the Storm Slides.
For those who choose not to ride and would like to wait for their loved ones, there is an area right at the bottom of the slide with plenty of seating for everyone. Because the slide sends guests down at over 30 miles per hour, the line for this attraction seem to constantly be moving.
As guests climb up 5 stories, past the mountain trail, they finally reach the top. At this point, shoes and sunglasses are taken off, swim suits are tied tight, and guests are measured to make sure they meet the height requirement of 48 inches.
There are three enclosed slides all exactly the same. When instructed, guests will sit down on the slide, cross their ankles, and wait for the green light.
After the light turns green guests push themselves down the slide, keep their ankles crossed, lay back, and cross their arms over their chest. As they plunge down 5 stories in seconds, guests can not see anything in the enclosed flumes until they reach the ending.
Finishing with a splash, misplaced swimsuits, and a wonderful weggie Humunga Kowabunga has become one of the more popular attractions at Walt Disney World’s Typhoon Lagoon.
