The pyramids (rainforest, aquarium and IMAX ) are world class attractions. The ropes course and the beach area are also very popular. You cannot do it all in just one day.

The coupons we found were only $2 off per person. Normal admission is $70 per person but this covers your admission to most of the activities offer. We did not visit the aquarium during our visit.
