The rides are: (1) Desert Storm, a steel-track, looping rollercoaster; (2) The Patriot, a tamer adult rollercoaster; (3) The Sky Tower, which lifts you up, then drops you 120 feet down; (4) Splashdown, a log flume ride; (5) Sea Dragon, a swinging-pendulum-type ride (seen in many amusement parks); (6) Free Fall, another tower that raises, then drops you; (7) Naskarts, real small cars to drive; (8) Bumper Boats; (9) Ramrods (bumper cars); (10) Magic Carpet, a fast ride in circles; and (11) The Carousel, with 60 beautiful handcrafted horses and circus animals. There are also three kiddie rides.
Another area of the park is a large building containing over 300 games--video games, air hockey, pinball, skeeball, etc. A third area is the very attractive set of four miniature golf courses. All three areas of the park have different operating hours, so it's best to call ahead. We took the grandkids miniature golfing here and were very pleased with the lush, green landscaping, the numerous little lakes, rivers and fountains, and the darling little buildings used as part of many of the putting greens. (At night, there are also dozens of festive, colorful lights turned on.)
Children age 5 and under play free; plus, we had a BOGO coupon from the Entertainment Coupon Book for Phoenix, so the outing was reasonably priced. (Other discounts coupons can often be obtained a local grocery stores. Also, after paying full price for your first round of golf, subsequent rounds receive a discount.) Each golf course is different, and all are equally lovely. If we'd had more time, we would have enjoyed trying them all!
