Upon entering the place you’ll be amazed by many things going on that will make you hard to decide which activity or facility you should be visiting first. On the entrance, you will be greeted by the life-size forms of dinosaurs and a mammoth (Mammoth is actually a room!). One of its original structure is its log cabin that resembles the cabins from the mountains abroad.

Another one of its kind lodging found here are the teepee huts located in their Indian Village. The huts are like huge triangular tents with so many appealing colors.

Once you get tired of all the activities that you have to try, you can make your tummy full with a sumptuous meal on their resort pavilion that serves as their restaurant. Eating in this facility is much like staying in a traditional cabin. We didn’t really expect this, but their foods are delicious and very affordable for their serving.
