    Every  10 minutes the animals came to life and moved and made noises. Every 30 minutes there was a thunder storm where it would thunder and ‘lightning’ the animals would get active and lights would dim. My kids loved it.

    We walked and saw the animals. The closest to us were the monkeys. There was a monkey in a tree
