I'll admit we had very high hopes after hearing how beautiful this park is. We weren't prepared for how crowded and brutally hot. My 9 yo DD went into total meltdown, and my 17 yo DS rapidly had enough as well. The downside seemed to be very narrow walkways crowded with people with no air moving; a truly abysmal lunch from the smokehouse; fans not working in the lines, all of which were 45 minutes or more with no fastpass/express pass options, and did I mention hot and crowded? The air temp was 100, and I'm sure all the bodies and concrete made it much hotter. We enjoyed Katonga--a broadway style show, and seeing baby animals in the nursery. Otherwise, nothing was worth the heat and crowds...not the rides, not the animals. We spent less than 5 hours there total.
