Disney just announced the name of the new ride coming to Typhoon Lagoon we saw permits filed for back in June. Miss Fortune Falls is described as a family-friendly raft ride and will have a ride time of two minutes, the longest of any Disney waterpark ride. The ride is scheduled to open in 2017.
UPDATE: The Disney Parks Blog finally has a post on this. March 2017 opening. Here’s the description.
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.
