Don't remember how many people were part of the tour... just remember the tour operator waited for us until we were ready at the hotel and drove us to the park. We all got maps and he let us know at what time he'd be there for us. Ok, no problem. We might have been a small group of people, but once we were inside the group splitted.
Mmm, we looked the map and the lines, so we decided to skip the first attractions and started with others.
Well, the attractions change all the time, so the ones I visited, might not be there anymore and there are new ones now, which means I have to go back, just to update my knowledge, hehe. Anyway we started with the Twister, which was cool! The line wasn't so long, yay! As if we were in a twister, we could feel the intense wind and driving rain while we were hearing Mother Nature's roar. This ride was great!
While we were walking to our next destination, I was enjoying the street sets.
Suddenly we arrived to NYC, well the sets of NYC and next to it was San Francisco, haha. One of the attractions there was the "Earthquake". Following the movie of the same name, it recreated an earthquake in the city. Lima is in a sismic area, but I have never experienced an earthquake here, so lucky! So, it was fun to experience one, knowing nothing bad would happen :)
While we were walking, we listened to a familiar song.
There were many things to see and do. We saw the Wild, Wild, West attraction. It was about a cowboy. Nothing too entertaining, but you could sit under the shadow, haha. So it worked for me perfect.
Of course we should go to "Back to the Future the ride", another classic. I really liked this one, so much, that we came back for a 2nd ride, haha. It was 3D one, cool! Here we had to use the passes to avoid the long lines. This attraction was always crowded. At the entrance you could see the "De Lorean", that famous car.
Then we went to the Woody Woodpecker's Kidzone. There we saw the "Funniest Animals", a show directed by Animal Planet, hehe. There were some orangutans and other animals, which made the children laugh a lot, haha. Since we were at the Kidzone, we saw some Nickelodeon characters too.
Next area we visited was "Hollywood". There we found one of the sweetest movies attraction: "E.T. Adventure". You had to hop aboard a star-bound bike and race across the moon. We were able to help E.
All the most famous movies where there. Of course we found "Jurassic Park" and others.
The day was long. I didn't remember at what time we had lunch or if we had it, haha. Time does fly when you are having fun. Not only the attractions were great, but also all the street sets. They made me remember different movies and felt as if I were there, haha. Well, it was time to go to the hotel. I was just thinking about taking a shower and relax, haha. But before going to bed, we went out for dinner. We didn't party that day. It was a long day, plus next one would be even longer...
