Orlando Magic Players Cool Off at Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park
After finishing the NBA regular season, a group of Orlando Magic players decided to celebrate at one of the coolest spots at Walt Disney World Resort – Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park. Magic players D.J. Augustin, Shelvin Mack and Terrence Ross visited the water park with their families, and got their summer off to a refreshing start.
The players and their small children enjoyed Tike’s Peak, an area designed for kids aged 2-5 with miniature slides and a snow-castle fountain play area. D.J. and Shelvin raced down the Downhill Double Dipper, while Terrence and his family splashed around Melt-Away Bay, the one-acre wave pool at the base of Mt. Gushmore. They even went to the extreme and experienced Summit Plummet, which sends you free falling from 120 feet high at 55 mph.
“Blizzard Beach is amazing,” Terrence said after their day at the park. “There’s a lot to do and all the attractions were amazing… the wave pool had my little man tuckered out. We had a good time.”
During this summer there will be Incredible Family Fun at Blizzard Beach, inspired by Disney•Pixar’s “Incredibles 2” animated film that opens in theaters on June 15. From May 25 through July 4, this limited-time experience features a DJ Dance Party (on select dates), scavenger hunts, duck races, obstacle courses and “Incredibles”-themed giveaways.
