The Mayan Temple has 2 more water slides- the Serpent Slide and the Jungle Slide. The Jungle Slide takes the kids through an exotic Jungle safari into the caves. Then there is a 120 foot tall Power Tower which features a 50 plus 200 feet long slide named “The Abyss” which begins with a 50 feet long vertical drop pushing the guests through darkness into an underground lair. The lair has prehistoric alligator gars and fishes. The Surge, The Drop, The Falls are some other throbbing water slides in this Power Tower that can intoxicate your body with an adrenaline rush!
