Blizzard Beach may have the tallest water slide in the world (Summit Plummet tops off at 12 stories), but Typhoon Lagoon’s Humunga Kowagunga offers Guests the thrill of plunging five stories—near vertical—downhill in the dark!

On the slopes to the right side of Mt. Mayday you will find Typhoon Lagoon’s body slides. The most exhilarating ones are the three enclosed side-by-side speed slides aptly named Humunga Kowabunga. (I always picture Stitch going crazy on these when all the Guests are gone.) Big kids, teens, and adults alike get a boost of adrenalin when they zoom 214-feet down the mountain at a 60-degree angle, reaching a speed of about 30 mph!

The high-octane thrill ends moments after it begins with a big spray in the splashdown zone, where your less-adventuresome friends can wait and watch on nearby bleachers.

Today’s Takeaway:
On a slide like Humunga Kowabunga, your body is kind of like a marble in a giant contraption. Today, use odds and ends around your house to make a contraption. This Phineas and Ferb-inspired activity might be helpful to get you started:

Yours can be something as complex as this large golf-ball one

or as simple and silly as this “Graham Cracker Smacker.”

Have fun!

SCHOOL SUBJECT: Physics (for more educational aspect, study the how’s and why’s of what makes contraptions work), Recess
SKILL LEVEL: Elementary, Middle Grades
