The Frog Family Experience

"This is one of those attractions we're glad to say we did, but we're not heart-broken if we can't fit it into our schedule every trip. Tad and Lily like the Catastrophe Canyon section, but are bored until that point. Leap never minds giving his feet a rest on the tram ride."
