Today, Disney has debuted a simple glance at a new attraction coming to Typhoon Lagoon. The attraction, which originally was announced under the name, "Miss Fortune Falls", has taken on a new title, "Miss Adventure Falls." However, what's more interesting than the name change is the connection this new attraction is set to have with the Society of Explorers and Adventurers. 

The society itself has recently popped up in quite a few Disney attractions including: Mystic Manor, Jungle Skipper Canteen, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, and quite a few other dining locations and attractions across the Disney Parks and Resorts. While many of you may not remember the society which originated with the Adventurer's Club at Downtown Disney long before the transformation into Disney Springs, it's influence is slowly returning to the parks in a big way. While you know my thoughts on that possibility if you've read (Could The Adventurer’s Club be Returning in an Entirely New Way?), it's quite exciting to see Disney using the elaborate story that has developed over the years to further enhance a new attraction. 

According to legend, Captain Mary Oceaneer (who supposedly owns the falls) was once an explorer and treasure hunter who wound up in a massive typhoon which scattered her treasures all across the area. For the time being, this is all we really know about the connection to the Society of Explorers and Adventurers, but more details are sure to develop when the attraction opens in March of this year

For now, here's the latest concept art which was released earlier today:   

The attraction itself features an automatic lift hill, both covered and uncovered sections, and may even include some audio-animatronics throughout your journey. While this is not technically a water coaster, due to the fact that it is only assisted on the lift hill, it will be a welcomed design for guests with mobility constraints or that are unable to climb multiple stairs.

While it's hard to believe this isn't simply a response to Universal's upcoming Volcano Bay water park, it's nice to see Disney investing in new entertainment for Typhoon Lagoon. While there is nothing quite like Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon (and their consistent awards attest to that), new additions and new ideas are always welcomed. Unfortunately, this addition also brought forth the removal of Shark Reef, an attraction which guests could enter a "tank"-style pool with live aquatic life. While the experience was beloved by many guests and was quite popular it is understood that the upkeep costs for the experience greatly influenced it's replacement.
