1. Know the Best Time to Visit

The best days to visit Typhoon Lagoon are Monday-Wednesday. In general, almost all weekdays are always great options, as the water park historically holds lower crowds in this timeframe.

Out of state visitors usually arrive on Thursdays, stay for the weekend, and then leave on a Monday. Additionally, most of the locals are in school or working during the weekdays!

2. Bring Your Own Towel

Although you are able to rent a towel at the water park (at an additional cost), you rent it for your visit and you must leave it at the park when you leave.

If you accidentally take the towel with you, you may be charged for the full price of the towel.

By bringing your own towel, not only can you dry off with your preferred towel, but you don't have to worry about accidentally taking it home, and you can save a few bucks.

3. Arrive 20 Minutes Before Opening

Arrive to the park early! The park normally opens at 10 am for the general population, and arriving 20 minutes prior to that is a great way to be one of the first to enter the park.

This will give you a better chance to get the best seat in the water park, as well as ride the most popular rides.

Be sure to check out the Typhoon Lagoon hours before visiting.

4. Rent a Locker

There are two types of lockers available at the water park, on a first-come, first-served basis.

The standard locker is $10 per day, and if you need a larger locker, it'll cost $15 for the day.

12.5" x 10" x 17" 15.5" x 13" x 17"
$10 per day $15 per day

5. Know How Parking Works

Unlike almost all major theme parks where parking is an additional cost, parking is complimentary for all guests.

6. Take a Picture of Where You Parked 

After a long and fun day at the park, the last thing that you'll want to do is spend hours looking for your car.

This tip is one that most skip over, until it happens to them! Then, they read this section three times just to make sure it never happens to them again.

Take a picture of where you parked (and the surrounding areas such as row names), or if you have an iPhone just drop a pin.

Either of these options will allow your day to go smoothly from beginning to end.

7. Know What You Can Bring Into the Park

 Knowing what items you can bring to Typhoon Lagoon can be a bit tricky, due to it being a water park and not a regular theme park.

  • Hat
  • Sunscreen
  • Bathing Suit
  • Towel
  • Water Shoes
  • Bags 
  • Bottle of water

You should be aware that all bags, backpacks, and packages will be inspected prior to entering the park.
