Though admission to the park is free, each attraction requires a separate tickets. Opt for a passport that grants you unlimited access to all six of the main attractions or purchase pay-as-you-go passes for each ride. Highlights include a treetop adventure course, high-octane thrill rides such as a rollercoaster and freefall tower, and quad bikes. There’s also a 4D cinema, a 3D shootout game, bumper cars, and a soft play area for younger kids.
