    How about the surf pool at Disney’s Typhoon lagoon? it’s really big and makes 6-foot waves that knock you down easily even when the waves are just below your knees.

    Imagine walking down that hallway under the transparent pool, looking up and seeing someone swimming above you. Imagine swimming and watching people pass under you. Amazing. I wish I had one of those in my house. I’d have so much fun with visitors.

    WoW never heard of the cave pool in Midway, Utah. I need to take a visit there, now that the weather is starting to get a little more colder. I have lived in Utah for past 7 yrs and never have heard of this pool. Interesting! And me being from Arizona, I would love to swim in that pool here!
