Get your kicks at Bahama Blaster, the steepest waterslide in the world, Batman: the Ride, which is a 4D free-fly coaster, or the Joker: Carnival of Chaos, one of the tallest pendulum rides on the planet. There’s also a collection of hotels nearby to suit every budget and style – here are the best, all bookable on Culture Trip.
