Slush Gusher of Disney’s Blizzard Beach water park in Walt Disney World is a single-person body slide that offers a very unique ride down from the top of Mount Gushmore. While perhaps not as exciting as other water slides, Slush Gusher still should be added to your list of to-do’s for any visit to Blizzard Beach.
Slush Gusher starts near the top of Mount Gushmore. Once there, you assume the usual position for water slides before a gate opens allowing you to accelerate your way down to the bottom. Along the way, expect some level areas before additional drops. These drops allow the rider to achieve a bit of “air time” if all of the conditions are right.
Disney describes the attraction with:
“Slush Gusher at Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park is a high-speed waterslide for big kids, teens and adults who are at least 48 inches tall. This 90-foot tall waterslide sends riders up and down as they speed over 2 humps on the way down Mount Gushmore.”
Slush Gusher is one of three attractions on the Green Slope of Mount Gushmore. The other two include the flagship body slide of Blizzard Beach, Summit Plummet, and the family raft ride Teamboat Springs. These three represent the single track slides of Blizzard Beach with rides on the close-by Purple Slope feature multiple tracks for rider racing.
To get to Slush Gusher, take the walkway to the top of Mount Gushmore or ride the Chairlift. Both offer excellent views along the way before you take your quick trip down the water slide.
