Question about Blizzard Beach Rides

Are the slides at Blizzard Beach like typhoon lagoons where you gradually walk up to the top or is it like most others where its a straight shot of stairs up?

Blizzard beach is ALOT of stairs. I don't remember the specific format of the steps as compared to TL, but I remember being exhausted by all the steps!

There is also the ski lift available, but the waits are sometimes longer than the slides.

same with TL, but they were in such a way that i was able to go up with no issue, ie, you went up to the top at some point, but you were not going RIGHT up

I think they're more tiring than the ones at TL being that they are higher,however they're not like what you might find at other waterparks that are essentially straight up.The chairlift at BB only gives you access to a couple of the slides one being the family raft ride but you might have a wait to get on the chairlift.I very much prefer the layout at TL where everything feels more spaced out,at BB all the slides are up the mountains and to get to them your options are 3 stairs or the chairlift,the slides are overall better at BB.
