Mexico - Another park

We went to a great new version of an amuzement park on one of our last days in Mexico. It basically had all of our fun activities we enjoy on a trip, in one "park".

One of the really cool things is that there were automatic cameras everywhere and they knew who you were based on a scan it did on your helmet (which you had to wear everywhere in the park). So, at the end of the day, you could buy a thumb drive with all of your pictures! So, that's how we got so many great pictures of the two of us!

First there was zip lining....

There were 13 zip lines (including 3 water landings...and one water slide), total included 2.5 miles of zip line!

One great thing was you just went from one to the next! No waiting for a group, no sitting around. Just when you did one line, you had to hike up the huge ramp and tons of steps to get to the next! So at leats we got our exercise!

Water landings! Very fun! We've zip lined before, but never had a water landing!

Then the "amphibious vehicles"! Two courses at 3.1 miles each.

We could see the cameras now, so we would pose!

I'll be honest, this bridge really freaked me out!!!!

Here was our view...there were 2 courses,
so the bridge on the 2nd course was even freakier!

Again, posing for the camera as we came out of a cave!

Then canoeing through the underground caves, about 600 yards.

Richard was pretending to be asleep in this picture!

The stalagtites in the caves

In the center of the park there was this heart. It was like the meeting place to get to or from every course. So, what else would you do but take a picture in front of it? So, like EVERYONE else, we took a picture...of our backs! :)

There was a 500 yard swim!

It was pretty darn cold being in the underground river...but, not as bad as I first thought! :)
So, this is the last of my Mexico posts...not bad it only took me a week! :) I think I covered the main things we did! It was a blast. Very strange to be without our kiddos for an entire week. But we had so much fun. And we did race home, only to get to see them both fast asleep when we peeked into their bedrooms.
