A ride that simply must be experienced, Maya Adventure ride rises to 33 meters (about 11 stories) and runs a full 740 meters long (give or take a few 360 degree loops). Passengers taking up the challenge will thrill to 4.5 G-force. Look out below! Those preferring to watch others take the ride can still revel in the exotic feel and flavors of the Mayan and Mexican villages set up in this theme area.

European Palace Garden
Promenade through European Gardens
The European Garden area is a well-manicured feast for the senses. Sprawling over 150 acres, the gardens invite visitors to enjoy a profusion of flowers and plants. The stately Roman Fountain serves as the Garden's centerpiece while other items, including a reconstructed Baroque bell tower, are artfully placed around the grounds. The Ritz Palace restaurant, a true reflection of European refinement and taste, stands at the far end of the garden. This area well deserves its reputation as the finest European-style garden on Taiwan.
