There are a few ways to spend a day in this fun theme park.

a. Queue up for all the exciting ride and prepare to get wet
b. Catch some of the stage performance and queue up for selected ride
c. Plan your timing on all the Stage/Street performances & character meet timing
d. Do whatever you like... hahaha
