    As can be seen in the attraction marquee, the ride's storyline has been woven into the multi-park story of the S.E.A.

    Exclamation New Family Raft Ride for Typhoon Lagoon: Updated 3/2/17 with Grand Opening Date

    1/10/17

    The forthcoming raft ride at Typhoon Lagoon has been renamed prior to opening:

    A Fast-Paced Waterslide Journey

    Gather your crew and climb aboard for a thrilling, white-water voyage you won’t want to “Miss.”

    Just beyond the pineapple fields of Crush ‘n’ Gusher awaits an all-new, family-raft attraction owned by Captain Mary Oceaneer—a sea-faring treasure hunter whose haul was caught in a rogue typhoon… and scattered across this tropical paradise years ago.

    From your 4-person raft, feel a rush of excitement with family and friends as an aquatic conveyor belt chutes you into action. Then, hold on tight as you spy precious artifacts collected from all around the globe.

    If you’re lucky enough, you may even meet the captain’s old diving partner—an Audio-Animatronic parrot who’s still hunting for treasures at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park to this day!

    Additionally, the opening window has been narrowed to March 2017.

    8/2/16


    The new raft ride has been publicly announced with a Spring 2017 opening date:

Legend has it that Captain Oceanear, a treasure-hunting heroine, traveled across the sea collecting unique artifacts before she became stranded at Typhoon Lagoon many years ago by a rogue storm.

    Aboard treasure rafts, guests will ascend to the top of the attraction before plunging into a white-water adventure where they will be able to spot some of the treasures Captain Oceanear gathered from around the world.

    With a ride time of two minutes, Miss Fortune Falls will be among the lengthiest attractions at both Disney Water Parks.

    Walt Disney Parks and Resorts has filed Application #:160608-3 / Permit#:48-00714-P with the South Florida Water Management District regarding construction for a new Family Raft Ride at Typhoon Lagoon.

    ...

    3.0 Proposed Project
    The project includes construction of new guest areas including a water feature. Sidewalks and
    landscaped areas will be provided for guest access.

    ...
    The following diagrams indicate the project area, a blue line has been overlaid the locations of the foundation pylons/supports to indicate an approximate path of the planned water flume:

    Sounds like it will be big! I hope it's as much fun as Teamboat Springs. That's our family favorite.

    Wonder if you can ride as a solo? All the other raft style rides are two or more riders. This is why I haven't been going to the water parks.

    Probably not. They even pair up groups of 2 and 3 together for these large raft rides. The rafts need to be balanced.

    You cam still go to the water park solo...they will pair you up at the loading area. It's no different than riding as a single rider at the theme parks.
