Because it wasn’t a hot day, we choose to bypass the water rides.   Instead, some of us rode the Manta roller coaster and the flight simulator. The roller coaster was a fast spit ball of a ride that had the occupants twisting and turning around corners at various angles.  There wasn’t that initial high drop but it made up for it in the speed!

Fun rides but neither are for the faint at heart.
