Lost Temple Rapids is a family tube slide where four riders share the same raft/tube. It’s a fun ride, but be sure to check it out right when the park opens, or right before it closes, because the lines can get very long. This is also the only tube-slide at the waterpark where you don’t have to carry the raft/tube up the stairs yourself.

River Cruise is the park’s lazy river, and travels around the 2 kid-areas. The River Cruise is a relaxed, cool, and easy way to get around the park, since there are multiple exits along the way.

A part of River Cruise goes through a temple ruin. The entire water park has a theming that matches this.

We guess that true advertisement has to be done this way…

Tornado is the park’s most popular slide and is a funnel-slide, meaning riders will sit in a 4 person tube, going around the corner to the drop, and drop into the funnel.
