Honu (and ika) of Honu ika Moana are two massive water slides that twist and turn side by side until riders splash into the landing pool. Honu will have you racing all of the way down, and ika is a bit slower. These set of slides are based off of the Waturi mythology characters Honu (a turtle) and ika (a whale)who are lose friends. Both are great for families as one holds up to 6 people and the other up to 4 people.

The Mouse For Less Tips
- Ika of Honu ika Moana is the calmer slide of the two; so the height requirement is actually a minimum of 42″ (106.7cm). Riders under 48″(121.9cm) must ride with a supervising companion. The weight has a combined 800lb (363kg) limit. So be sure you know which slide your party is going to ride.
- If the names are tricky to remember, the green slide (ika) is the more gentle one, and Honu (blue) will race to the bottom with it sharp twists and turns.
- Although both slide of Honu ika Moana have different height and weight restrictions both require at least two passengers per raft.
