Tropical Islands Highlights
This enormous man-made rainforest (reputedly the world’s largest indoor rainforest) covers an area of 30,000 cubic meters! With 50,000 trees and 500 types of plant, you may not realize you’re not in the real thing.
Guided tours of this forest are available where you’ll find out the answer to such perplexing questions like “why are bananas bent?” ;-)
If traveling to Bali or Indonesia is just too far for you, then Tropical Village is the next best thing. With reproductions of Balinese and Thai architecture, pavilions and temples, this is the next best thing to a real holiday in the tropics.
This beautiful lagoon and garden is the perfect way to relax. As the sounds of running and rushing water surround you, you can float in the canal or submerge in the whirlpool. The water is heated to at least 32° C (90° F).
For more excitement, try the water slide and waterfall adventure!
