Runoff Rapids refurbishment

Recent aerial views of Disney's Blizzard Beach waterpark show significant work is under at the Runoff Rapids water slides.

The complex of three slides originally closed for refurbishment in late January 2017, and did not reopen throughout the season.

Since the park closed for its scheduled winter refurbishment on October 30 2017, work has progressed quickly to remove large sections of the slides and associated plumbing work.

It isn't yet clear what the end result of the refurbishment will be, but it appears that the original slide sections are being reused. Blizzard Beach is scheduled to reopen on January 8 2018.
