  • For those living in America it might one of the other amusement parks, but it is the first park I visited on my short trip to America, I didn't spend much time in water park but the dry rides were all too good.. There is guidance on thrill level and everyone can choose accordingly... Steel venom and wild roller coaster were best ones with 5 thrill rating 🙂
