Accompanied by professionals, you can experience the thrill of walking side by side with the king of the jungle, and even play in the streams and grasslands together to stage a live-action version of "Tarzan." Afterwards, you will be awarded a bravery certificate as a souvenir. Four-wheel drive You can also choose to rent a four-wheel drive or a more maneuverable two-wheel Segaway to travel freely through the lush tropical forests, waiting for unexpected encounters with zebras, tortoises and ostriches. A more exciting experience is the ropeway gliding project through the valley in the park. You will experience a wonderful journey like a bird soaring in the sky in the gliding distance of hundreds of meters. In addition, the park has free parking lots, restaurants, grocery stores, 4D cinemas, souvenir shops and other service facilities for tourists' leisure and entertainment needs. The park is very large and rich in content. If you want to play it all, it will take at least half a day.
