Kristoff and Olaf from Disney’s hit animated film “Frozen” are on their way from Arendelle to help host the inaugural “Frozen” Games at Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park this summer.

Starting May 27 and running through Aug. 21, our “Frozen” friends will invite guests visiting Blizzard Beach to join Team Kristoff or Team Olaf each day to participate in a variety of winter-themed activities including:

Ice Pail Relays where teams line up and pass pails of water to one another, trying to be the first to fill a container at the end.
A “Snowball” Toss where pairs compete in a snow-themed water balloon toss.
Ski Pole Limbo, a snowy twist on traditional limbo—using a ski pole as the limbo bar!
Slide Races that allow teams to race down one of the signature water slides at Blizzard Beach.
Olaf and Kristoff will be on hand, appearing on the Observation Deck near Summit Plummet to take part in the opening and closing ceremonies, and giving updates on their teams’ progress throughout the day.

The “Frozen” Games will be an all-day event that guests can sign up for when they arrive at the park entrance. All activities are included with regular admission to Blizzard Beach.
