This place was amazing!!! The view of the mountains and the rivers was incredible! I downloaded the app and it was cool because you could see AR animals and they looked like they were right there! On the app I also got to listen to different facts about the place, a different one every time! You should definitely go there, it's worth it!

Wow, what a fun day. We took the old train, that was a treat in itself. The sky rail ride was so beautiful. We have wonderful photos to remind us of such a fun day. The little town has great resaurants and shops. We loved the spider and bat sanctuary too.
