Fun, but pricey. It has classic rides and some roller coasters, as well. My favorite is the train ride around the lake.

Boulder Dash is the best coaster in the world I don't care what the golden ticket awards say. That ride is flying, smooth and has more airtime than el toro and I love the CCI trains they are smoother than any other coaster cart.
