    Typhoon's new attraction: Crush 'N' Gusher

    Here is the official release:


    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Flash flooding will take on a whole new meaning for Walt Disney World guests in 2005 as they experience Crush 'N' Gusher, a new white-knuckle "water coaster" thrill ride like never before at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon.

    Crush 'N' Gusher will utilize "some of the latest water ride innovations in the industry today," said Patrick Brennan of Walt Disney Imagineering and lead creative designer of the new attraction. "When completed, Crush 'N' Gusher at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park will be the only water coaster thrill ride of its kind in Central Florida."

    While riding Crush 'N' Gusher, guests will be whisked along a series of flumes and spillways that weave through what appears to be a rusted-out tropical fruit facility. It's another chapter of the Typhoon Lagoon legend.

    As guests slip and slide through torrents of gushing water, gravity defying conditions caused by the recent typhoons create crushing bursts that propel guests up and down through cavernous twists and turns, weaving in and out of treacherous wreckage and debris that once transported tropical fruit through the plant's wash facilities.

    Walt Disney World guests will have three different fruit spillways to choose from, each ranging between 410 to 420 feet in length with varying degrees of slopes and turns -- Banana Blaster, Coconut Crusher and Pineapple Plunger.

    I meant about the ride! I did not realize how it sounded until I read it again after your post. Yeah, I have seen your picture. Speaking of your picture, where is the post with the picture of Al and Jas with your head in Al's place? I was looking for that thread today and could not find it.

    That sounds like too much fun! I haven't been to the water parks in years, but this might warrant a trip!
