    crosscountryGrab an inner tube raft, put your feet up and chill out in this gently meandering stream that flows around the perimeter of Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park. Pass through polar caves—large cave-like tunnels—and under gentle, misty waterfalls as your raft drifts aimlessly along.
    Big kids, teens and adults can ride at their leisure and let the world drift slowly by, or use Cross Country Creek for effortless transportation to other areas of Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park. There are 7 locations to enter and exit Cross Country Creek.
    Cross Country Creek is located at ground level and rafts are included with the price of admission. Grab a raft just about anywhere along the creek’s route to soak up the sun and go with the flow.

    dddipperHop on an inner tube and race down the slopes! This waterslide resembles an Olympic-style downhill ski race with starting gates and a time clock to track each racer’s time. To allow for a fair race, the start gates open simultaneously when the race begins.
    But that’s not all. Half the race is in the dark! As you speed down a pair of 50-foot high, 230-foot-long side-by-side racing slides at 25 miles per hour, you disappear into a tunnel and emerge just before splashdown.
