Mount Gushmore is an artificial hill in Disney's Blizzard Beach water park. The mountain formerly included a rock climbing wall attraction; this has, however, been non-operational for a number of years, due to safety and staffing considerations. A chairlift transports guests to the top of Mount Gushmore, where the entrances to many of the slides and flumes are. With a total elevation of 90 feet, this artificial mountain is the fifth highest point in Florida.

Mount Gushmore hosts the majority of the major attractions at the park, and is split into three coloured slopes to aid guests navigating around the park: Green, Red and Purple.

Mount Gushmore houses a few of the park's highest slides, and is itself 90 feet high. The park's highest slide, Summit Plummet, is the highest "free sliding" body slide in the US.

The mountain also serves an important logistical function: concealing the park's pipework.
