  • 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 🙂
  • Hope you have the best day ever! It's fun but catering to mainly season pass holders has definitely changed the place since I was a kid. Just doesn't feel as great as it used to. Caricature artists out there are fantastic though ;)
