Growling lions. Chest thumping apes. Trumpeting elephants. Squawking birds. Thunder. Lightening. This is a kid's wonderland. Food is average. Games are expensive. The river float is rewarding to kids under 10. Gotta have a VOLCANO!

First beach trip for my daughter and she still talks about eating at the “volcano restaurant “. Was delicious, entertaining, and the ride they have through the volcano is cute too.

Best rainforest cafe Ive been to. Food is good the restaurant is very clean. And it has a ride! The ride is an indoor dark boat ride and it was very well themed I would compare it to a Disney ride.
