From the Cast Member Preview on March 9th

Typhoon Lagoon is scheduled to open on Sunday, 3/13, with a new attraction: Crush ‘n’ Gusher. This area used to be part of a fruit packing plant. More specifically, this is where they washed the fruit before packing. There are three slides: Pineapple Plunger, Coconut Crusher, and Banana Blaster.

At the top of the structure is a loading platform. The Banana Blaster begins on one side, all by itself. The Coconut Crusher and Pineapple Plunger are side by side. The Pineapple Plunger was not operating.

This is a “tube” ride. One or two people get into a tube and get in position on a conveyor belt at the top of the slide. When it is clear, a ride operator pushes a button, and the conveyor belt slowly moves the tube forward over rollers onto the slide. And away you go!

Crush ‘n’ Gusher is located to the right as you enter Typhoon Lagoon, behind the dressing rooms.
