Defunct Rides

  • Tampa Typhoon: A water slide that closed after the 2005 season. The slide opened in the late 1980s and shared a tower with Gulf Scream, a now defunct water slide(read below for info). Standing nearly 70 feet (21 m), or seven stories tall, the ride allowed patrons to see for miles around, including a view of the nearby MOSI museum.
  • Gulf Scream: Built in 1980, it was the second ride to be constructed in the park. It shared its tower with (now defunct) Tampa Typhoon until 2005. It was demolished in 2014 to make way for the Park's newest ride Colossal Curl, a tube slide that opened in 2015.
