They say it never snows in Florida, but in one location, there’s snow year around. That’s Blizzard Beach, where a magical snowstorm has taken over the water park and made conditions ripe for the mounting of a ‘winter games’ in the middle of Summer. That’s just what the folks at Disney plan to do and they’ve invited Kristoff and Olaf from Disney’s animated feature “Frozen” to host the activities.
From May 27 through August 21, guests checking in for a refreshing day at Blizzard Beach may choose to join Team Kristoff or Team Olaf and participate in a variety of winter-themed activities throughout each day, including:
- Ice Pail Relays – teams will line up and pass pails of water quickly from one person to the next, trying to fill a container at the end. The team that fills their container first is the winner.
- Snowball Toss – pairs compete in a snow-themed water balloon toss from progressively greater distances. The pair that gets the farthest apart without breaking its water balloon is the winner.
- Ski Pole Limbo – guests play limbo, using a ski pole as the bar.
- Slide Races – teams race down one of the signature water slides at Blizzard Beach,
- and much more!
Olaf and Kristoff will take part in the “Frozen” Games’ opening and closing ceremonies by appearing on the Observation Deck near the Summit Plummet attraction each day, accompanied by trumpet fanfare, banners, and music. Additionally, one lucky guest will be chosen each morning to be the Ski Captain and thus the first guest to take the plunge down Summit Plummet, signaling the start of the “Frozen” Games.
From the observation deck, Olaf and Kristoff will give regular updates throughout the day on their teams’ progress and achievements, as well as announce the winning team of the “Frozen” Games.
The “Frozen” Games are an all-day event at Blizzard Beach, beginning shortly after the park opens. Guests who want to participate should sign up at the park entrance, and all activities are included with regular park admission. So break out those board shorts and layer on that sunblock, it’s time to get Frozen at the water park.
