Shark filled lagoon

 The leap of faith slide is a 60 ft almost vertical drop from the famous and iconic Mayan Temple with ruff speed through a clear acrylic tunnel submerged in a shark filled lagoon, the tunnel takes you through the water full of sharks good for the thrill seekers. Its an awesome ride.

The worlds largest open-air aquarium with 5000 sea animals, waterfalls, lagoons, and a mayan temple water slide. There are several swimming pools. Kerzners vision was right because then came the tourists. Wonderful sea life and the water is crystal clear you can see the different shades of blue are terrific.This was a great vision and it came true for everyone to enjoy.
