The grand icon of Aquaventure is the Mayan Temple, which towers at an astounding six-story height. The structures boasts several thrilling water rides, including the Leap of Faith,a 60-foot near-perpendicular plunge that sends riders through a clear acrylic tunnel submerged in a shark-filled lagoon. The Mayan Temples boasts three other slides as well, including the Challenger slides, Serpent Slide, and the Jungle Slide.
If you want something a little more “adrenaline fueled”, then The Power Tower is for you. It is Aquavbentures’s tallest feature at 120′ and home to 4 adrenaline-inducing water slides. The most notorious, The Abyss, drops body sliders at a staggering near-vertical 50 feet into total darkness and through tumbling waterfalls, ending your journey in a deep cenote filled with menacing Alligator Gars. If that is a little too much adrenaline, the 3 inner-tube slides, The Drop, The Falls and The Surge are also located in the The Power Tower. Using “master-blaster” technology riders are propelled both uphill and down hill throughout the tower.
