Today was all about FUN IN THE SUN! We shot the rapids, swam with the sharks, and plunged down the mayan slide. Most importantly, we relaxed at the pool. Aquaventure is a one-of-a-kind 141 acre waterscape. This non-stop aquatic thrill ride features over twenty million gallons of water, incredible Atlantean themed towers, thrilling high speed water slides, a mile long river ride with rolling rapids and wave surges, and 20 swimming areas. After our day at the park, we enjoyed shopping and eating at the Marina Village

Inside the Mayan Temple is a five-story corkscrew slide, we traveled on a tube at high speeds through the darkness of the Mayan Temple's core. The twisting and turning ride culminates with a leisurely pass through a clear acrylic tunnel submerged in a SHARK-filled lagoon.
