According to legend, a bizarre winter storm dropped a large blanket of white snow over the central Orlando area. In the aftermath of the storm, an exclusive ski resort opened featuring, ski lifts, down-hill slopes, skating rinks, and toboggan runs.
But as sudden temperature changes melted the snow, this winter-y wonderland transformed itself into high speed water-slides, vertical chutes, lazy rivers, grottos, azure pools, and much more.
Seeing an opportunity, an enterprising character named Ice Gator clad in a hat and scarf decided to ski down the slushy ski jump shouting Whoopee! With a big splash he landed in a pool of melted snow below the mountain, and the slushy, slippery slopes became an exhilarating water park.
