Orlando’s Most Thrilling Waterpark Rides

This spring break put your courage to the test as you brave the most thrilling waterpark rides in Orlando. The City Beautiful is home to multiple waterparks, each with their own uniquely themed rides that are sure to delight thrill-seekers. To get started on your tour of epic waterpark slides, check out our list of the most thrilling waterpark rides in Orlando.

Humunga Kowabunga

Zoom down five stories in this exciting ride at family-friendly waterpark Typhoon Lagoon. You’ll feel a rush of adrenaline as you slide at a 60 degree angle down the enclosed tunnel to the finish. As the mildest thrill ride on this list, Humunga Kowabunga is perfect for those wanting to work their way up to more intense slides and bigger drops.

Puihi of Maku Puihi Round Raft RidesTM

If a little companionship boosts your confidence, try this multi-rider raft ride at Universal’s Volcano Bay. Puhi of Maku Puihi Round Raft RidesTM sends you and your fearless friends spinning down a lava tube path. You’ll wind through open and enclosed sections on this wild raft ride including a funnel that creates an exhilarating sensation of weightlessness.

Ihu’s Breakaway Falls

When you’re ready for more scream-inducing fun, head over to Ihu’s Breakaway Falls® at Aquatica, the steepest multi-drop tower in Orlando. Hike the 126 steps to the top of the tower, then choose one of the four slides of varying levels of intensity. Step into the breakaway box and wait for the countdown. When the floor drops away, you’ll slide down 80 feet of steep twists and turns all the way to the finish. Pose for a commemorative photo after the ride to let everyone know you braved the falls.

Summit Plummet

As a former ski resort, Blizzard Beach has some of the most unique waterpark rides in the city. In fact Summit Plummet, its most intense ride, used to be a ski jump. To try your luck on the slopes, you’ll first climb to the top of Mount Gushmore. From there you’ll whoosh down the nearly vertical 120-foot slope with open and enclosed sections. Remember to check your top speed on the digital stop clock once you make it to the bottom.

Ko’okiri Body Plunge – Volcano Bay

Currently the tallest water slide in America, Ko’okiri Body Plunge is not for the faint of heart. You’ll start by scaling Krakatau, the volcano at the center of Volcano Bay, as you prepare for time honored tradition of paying homage to volcano god Vol. When it’s time, take your place inside the capsule as rhythmic drum beats encourage you. Unlike Ihu’s Breakaway Falls, the trap door here drops without warning and soon you’ll be rushing down the 125 foot slide at a 70 degree angle.

Whether you’re ready for the Ko’okiri Body Plunge or starting out with milder thrills, you’ll need a centrally-located Orlando hotel. Midpointe Hotel is located just off International Drive, so getting to all of Orlando’s best waterparks will be a breeze. Book your Orlando vacation today by calling 407-352-1507.
