Romp on sloshy slides, fun-filled fountains, watery whales, slippery seals, an interactive lushly leaking tugboat and a mini ripply-rapids ride. Little squirts love the adventures that are just their size in this children's water play area. It's a little wateropolis of splashy fun!

Ketchakiddee Creek contains small slides, raft rides, bubbling jets, squirting water, and a fun tug boat named S.S. Squirt.

Parents must accompany children in this area and provide supervision.

Ketchakidde Creek is a great area for families, especially families with children that just miss the 48 inch requirement to get on the bigger rides.

Ketchakiddie Creek has two slides that children have to be
less than 48 inches tall to ride.


The corner of Typhoon Lagoon designed primarily for smaller children is known as Ketchakiddee Creek. The name naturally identifies this as a kids' area, but it's also an allusion to the sort of Native American names attributed to many places throughout Florida, such as Lake Okeechobee and the Econlockhatchee River.

The Ketchakiddee Creek itself winds from the raft slide at one end down to a shallow wading area at the other, where toddlers can splash around, climb on "wooden" animal totems and be surprised by bubbling fountains. This waterway divides the play area in two. On the west side, kids who came before us have built an enormous sandcastle ship and fortress, now forever engaged in a watery battle.

The east side of the area represents a local boat cleaning and maintenance area. There are little skiffs hoisted up in the air for repairs (one of them is named C. Worthy, but looks far from it). Here, a big rusty tank spews water from every pipe fitting and seam, and other props form a series of speedy slides for the kids.

Once again, the close observer is rewarded with fun details and a bit of humor. This trailer for the boat wash company advertises, "Keels Hauled. Hulls Cleaned. Decks Swabbed." Of course, they also throw in the caveat... "Sorry, No Sailors Washed.
