It appears that Disney has been having some mechanical issues with Summit Plummet and Slush Gusher at Blizzard Beach. Apparently the water slides have been closed for weeks, with no firm re-opening date in sight, due to a broken pipe. We reported that Blizzard Beach was closed March 16-17th, and that guests were allowed to go to Typhoon Lagoon instead, which was supposed to be undergoing refurbishment, but was instead opened for the 2 days for guests. It appears that the slides have not been functioning since that time.

Summit Plummet is Blizzard Beach’s tallest, most intense ride. It features a 120-foot slope, while Slush Gusher is a high-speed 90-foot slide.

Disney has stated that guests who may want to ride similar thrill-seeking water slides should head over to their second water park, Typhoon Lagoon, where they can ride the Humunga Kowabunga, a similar slide to Summit Plummit.

It appears in Late September, there was also some broken pipes that needed to be replaced, but seeing as the park was built over 20 years ago, it doesn’t seem unreasonable that some maintenance will be needed from time to time. While some rumors state that the slides will re-open on Saturday, Disney itself says there is no official re-opening date for the slides.

Does this put a damper on your water fun at Blizzard Beach?
