Visit this park and you’ll enter an amazing kingdom of animals—real, imagined, and extinct. On a Kilimanjaro Safari, you’ll think you’re in Africa, as giraffes, hippos, elephants, rhinos, and lions roam freely as you ride in an open-air vehicle through savannahs and rivers and over rocky hills. Festival of the Lion King is a high-energy show that features great music, dance, and specialty acts. The Dinosaur takes you on a wild ride through the land of extinct creatures as you rush to save the life of a baby dinosaur. Then, get ready to get wet when you raft down the turbulent waters of the Chakranadi River through a rainforest that features geysers and waterfalls. There’s so much to see and do in this incredible park, you and your family won’t want to miss it!
