You can also try the Slingshot, which catapults you into the air.

For more laid-back activities within the park, you can catch a film at the 4-D theater, get a souvenir at the numerous shops, or treat yourself to meals and snacks in the numerous restaurants.   Kids can enjoy the Ferris wheel, mini rollercoaster, train, or play carnival games. Since the park is indoors, your family can have fun without worrying about the weather.
