They are constantly looking for new and exciting ways to connect people to the natural world. We’ll also experience Tanganyika Falls, a new state-of-the-art 5,000 fully-customized animal-themed paradise filled with awesome aquatic features such as slides, water-tipping buckets, climbing structures, waterfalls, and a giant, water-spewing giraffe.
