Today Disney Parks have announced the newest addition to Typhoon Lagoon. After rumors and some information leaking out about the new ride, it was only time until an official announcement.

The family raft slide goes through a white-water splashing adventure. Details on the attraction beyond the story are scarce. We do know the ride duration is around 2 minutes. This makes it one of the longest attractions at either Disney water park.

Details on the attraction’s story as released by Disney are available below.

Miss Fortune Falls will be a family-style raft attraction that takes guests on a splashing journey through the fabled Captain Mary Oceanear’s past. Legend has it that Captain Oceanear, a treasure-hunting heroine, travelled across the sea collecting unique artifacts before she became stranded at Typhoon Lagoon many years ago by a rogue storm.

Onboard 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.

It’s good to see attention making its way to Disney’s water parks. Universal is also planning to open their new water theme park next year. We’ll see how the new ride compares to what Universal will offer when it opens in Spring 2017.
