Fantastic day at the park. Extremely well organised and efficient process. Entry was quick despite huge queue at 10am so definitely book ahead. Lockers for belongings, beds/umbrellas to rent all very reasonably. Brilliant slides and didn’t have to wait too long to go on. Loved it. Highly recommend. We will definitely be back

So much fun cruising the river in silence with the solar powered boat. Our Captain was informative and amusing. We were able to converse at normal volumes and there was not smelly exhaust. We immediately booked the other tip offered by Sunboats for tomorrow

An unforgettable day, visiting the caves is incredible, beautiful colors. The barbecue nothing to complain about everything was perfect. Very present staff. I recommend this outing!

A great day, it exceeded the expectations we had. It lasted 7 hours and it was very short. The team a 10 for them. In general, we will repeat the next time we go.
