My kids love to climb on monuments and temples. They were really excited to be able to climb on the temples in thenLost World. When you climb these temples you get a great view of the Grand Plaza temples and Temple 4.

The complex includes the Great Pyramid among other structures that are still being unearthed and studied. A different vibe from the rest of the park.
