Mount Gushmore’s Summit Plummet

Where: Blizzard Beach at Walt Disney World, Orlando

The first thing you see when you enter Blizzard Beach is 90-foot, snowcapped Mount Gushmore, the world’s most photographed faux-mountain and home to one of the fastest free-fall speed slides. From the Summit’s ski jump tower, riders take a vertical plunge straight down to the base of the mountain.

Crazy Fact: Exactly how vertical is that drop? You’ll plummet 120 feet (about 12 stories) at a speed of 60 mph.
