Snow Stormers of Disney’s Blizzard Beach water park in Walt Disney World is another “competitive” water slide offered at the park. It consists of three slalom-style racing slides allowing you and two others to race to the bottom to see who wins.
Snow Stormers requires you to grab a toboggan-style mat before heading to your respective slide launch point. Once at the launch point, you lay stomach down on the mat and prepare for your race against your two fellow competitors.
Disney describes the attraction with:
“Snow Stormers at Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park are 3 slalom-style racing course waterslides designed for big kids, teens and adults that use toboggan-style mats to slide down.”
What the description does not imply is the fun that can be had as you compete to win the title of fastest rider down Snow Stormers! Surely, if not you, someone in your party would be glad to claim that title. In fact, you may have to hold different challenges to really determine who the true speed demon is.
To located Snow Stormers, get to the top of Mount Gushmore by either taking the marked walkway or by riding the Chairlift. Those feeling especially fit can opt for the path but most will want to take the Chairlift for the leisurely ride to the top.
Snow Stormers is one of three attractions on the Purple Slope of Mount Gushmore. The Purple Slope features the attractions with multiple tracks allowing for the racing opportunities. The other two Purple Slope attractions are Downhill Double Dipper and Toboggan Racers
