Shark filled lagoon

 The leap of faith slide is a 60 ft almost vertical drop from the famous and iconic Mayan Temple with ruff speed through a clear acrylic tunnel submerged in a shark filled lagoon, the tunnel takes you through the water full of sharks good for the thrill seekers. Its an awesome ride.

The worlds largest open-air aquarium with 5000 sea animals, waterfalls, lagoons, and a mayan temple water slide. There are several swimming pools.
