While Typhoon Lagoon may be best known for its fabled post-typhoon ramshackled condition, there remain places of quiet retreat amidst the cargo, surfboards and other marine wreckage left by the great storm. After ascending the rugged and wet rock form stairs behind and above the popular lagoon, you are rewarded with the tranquil sounds of mountain streams and tropical songbirds. The quiet breaks between the sounds of crashing waves, excited beach goers, and thrill-seeking rafters makes you wonder if this how the previously named Placid Palms Resort Village once sounded.
Few others know about this place — the solitude only infrequently interrupted by those who, in their haste to get to the next adventure, seem to miss the quiet joy of this space completely. Admittedly, you’re glad that you can enjoy this moment alone, although you commit to sharing your discovery with others.
This moment was recorded in 3D 180 degree video and is best enjoyed with a virtual reality headset. However, it can also be enjoyed from your computer browser or phone, using your finger to pan or moving your physical position for an augmented reality effect. Use headphones to more fully immerse yourself in 3D sound.
