    It would’ve been better if they let the guests not wear masks on the rides and activities. There were some activities that will get you wet and having masks isn’t the most fun. Also, if they require this, make sure that there’s replacement masks that they’ll give. The zip lines were fun and enjoyable. We were able to conquer our fears. River swim was a blast and the ATV ride was also something that I would recommend. The rafting is boring. That wasn’t the rafting we were expecting. I suggest that you place a notice for the guests to know when they’re nearing the camera. We were always caught off guard. Food was okay. I like the way that it’s served by the staffs. The wait staffs were all polite and kind. Wish there were more rides and activities. Overall, it’s a good experience.
