New Cargo Tube Lift Added to Runoff Rapids at Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park

Guests will no longer have to haul their own tube up the towering staircase to ride Runoff Rapids at Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park. During the extended closure, a cargo tube lift was constructed to carry tubes to the top of the attraction.
