Aerial Photos of Summit Plummet Slide Replacement During Annual Blizzard Beach Refurbishment

As we spotted just yesterday, there are some slide pieces staged in the Blizzard Beach parking lot for what we assumed was a Summit Plummet refurbishment. On Summit Plummet, guests plunge 12 stories almost straight down, rocketing through a darkened tunnel and into a massive spray of whitewater after a 360-foot-long, high-speed descent.

Today, we took to the skies above Walt Disney World to get an aerial look at the Blizzard Beach refurbishment. During the flight, we noticed that Summit Plummet had some scaffolding around the top of the slide and that slide pieces were, in fact, removed.

First, here’s a look at the pieces staged in the Blizzard Beach parking lot.

Now, here’s a look at the attraction from the air where you can notice the missing blue slide at the runout portion of the ride.

Normally, we’d expect the blue slide to continue to the end of the ride as seen in the distance in photo below.

Summit Plummet is scheduled to reopen on January 13, 2020.
