How about a family adventure? Typhoon Lagoon’s Gangplank Falls allows up to four Guests in one raft to ride the rapids. This rapid adventure takes families through caves, down rocky mountainsides, and past waterfalls. Oh, there’s one more thing…fireworks. That’s right! Fireworks! The typhoon that swept all the debris seemed to have also swept up some Chinese fireworks and gunpowder. Just keep your fingers crossed that none of the boxes catch a spark!
This raft ride is great for all ages. This is also a great experience for family or friends to have together, which is rare compared to some of the other water park attractions. Located near Keelhaul Falls and Mayday Falls, this raft ride also offers scenic views and fun thrills very much like Teamboat Springs at Blizzard Beach.
We all know that a trip to Disney isn’t complete without one show with fireworks! But just how does Disney do it every night? With great shows like Fantasmic, Wishes Nighttime Spectacular, and IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth at Walt Disney World Resort, have you ever wondered how these beautiful sparks of light are created? Well take a look at the video below to see the complex process of putting together a firework.
Neat huh? Now take a look at how a Disney’s pyrotechnic team creates a firework display at Disneyland Resort with this little behind-the-scenes video!
Remember that fireworks are extremely dangerous and should always be handled with care, under mature adult supervision. Be smart and safe with fireworks!
