Pelican Plunge opens at Disney’s Castaway Cay

| May 19, 2010 | Reply

Pelican Plunge, the new water slides at Castaway Cay, are now open for guests to enjoy. The slides were planned to be open this summer, but recent passengers on the Disney Cruise Line report that they have opened early. The attraction features a floating platform with 2 water slides – one is an enclosed corkscrew slide and the other is a 140-foot long open slide into the ocean. The platform also includes a giant bucket that dumps water on guests, as well as four water cannons to shoot targets placed in the water.

Disney Parks Blog has released a video of the new water attraction.

Another change coming to the island is a 2,400-square foot play area called Spring-a-Leak. This water playground will look like it was hit by a storm, with leaking pipes and broken plumbing. Water jets and a splash pad will be fun for guests of all ages.
