Riptide at Typhoon Lagoon
Friday May 31 – 8pm – 2am
Headline DJs: Rosabel (DJ’s Ralphi Rosario & Abel)
Tidal Wave Bear Lagoon DJs: Barry Huffine & Brayden Marc
For one night, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Waterpark becomes entirely yours for the party of the year! The weekend’s signature event once again washes ashore Disney’s entire 52-acre fantasy water park, where 6,000 party animals clad in little more than a bathing suit thrill to dancing, amazing water rides, or chill out inside this sprawling theme park.
ALL NEW FOR 2019 are two rides open all night. Board Miss Adventure Falls treasure raft and hit the high seas for crazy fun during the longest ride in the history of the Disney water parks! Also, this year the Crush “n” Gusher water-coaster will remain open all night.
It’s no wonder Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Waterpark is known around the world. Imagine you’ve been washed ashore a giant hidden lagoon where you encounter a massive six-foot wave pool and giant water slides. All around you lies the strewn debris of abandoned fishing ships. Explore isolated alcoves with your friends – or a special new friend.
Bliss CARES has signed on as a sponsor to present “Bliss Beach” during the Riptide at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Waterpark. “The addition of Bliss Beach to Riptide will create a space where our transgender brothers and sisters can ‘Mix, Mingle and Relax’ with other transgender individuals from around the world” said Tom Christ of One Magical Weekend. “Transgender individuals are being disparaged everywhere, even here in the US where they are currently under fire for wanting nothing more than to show their patriotism and fight for our country. We want them to know they are welcome and loved, not only at our Riptide event, but all our events during the weekend.”
Tickets are $100 for general admission and $200 for VIP which includes: VIP Express Entry Line, VIP designated area, and an Open bar.
To support Bliss Beach, One Magical Weekend is offering a special promotion for all Transgender groups around the country. If your group would like to participate, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org for instructions and to get your special promo link. Your members will be able to buy a general admission ticket at the regular price and get one general admission ticket absolutely free (BOGO). Limited time offer.
