As soon as we arrived, Sheila welcomed us and offered us refreshment. I felt like home immediately. Received thorough instructions about safety and what to expect on our tour. Our pilot was very profesional and friendly, explained everything as we were enjoying the view. Me encantó el vuelo. Fué una experiencia única q voy a repetir muy pronto.

When to get there

Since the park is a popular destination among families and their children, the busiest time of year is when school is not in session. So expect long lines when visiting during summer vacation, spring break, winter holidays, and other public holidays when schools are off. If you want to avoid large crowds and long lines, the best time to visit is midweek during the school year.
