Ever hear about those crazy people who chase storms just for fun? You’d have to be nuts to run towards a tornado, but there’s a type of storm no one chases because it forms over the ocean! A typhoon is a real rager as far as wind speed and moving water around goes. Well now you can feel what it’s like to chase the ultimate natural thrill ride storm.

This blue behemoth is partnered with Twister Falls and Banshee Plunge in a three-slide complex. But the Typhoon’s all-blue tube extends far off the tower before coiling into a pile far below.

Grab a raft and dive into a slide that’s so gnarled up, you’ll be in a constantly shifting, spinning, upside-down world as you pummel down to the pool. As the sunlight comes through the bright blue tubes, your whole world will turn into a giant storm of blue light and water, as if you were in the middle of a wild ocean cyclone. That is, if you dare to keep your eyes open.
