All Star Adventures is an amusement park featuring rides and a variety of outdoor activities. Apart from two mini-golf courses where you can practice your teeing and putting skills, there are adult go-karts, arcade games, bumper cars, a driving range, batting cages, and bowling. Two of the fun rides here include The Paratrooper and The Spider. The former consists of ten pods that move at an angle, so you move sideways as the ride spins, while the latter spins around in varying circles with different spinning seats that move up and down. You can also test your gaming skills at The Arcade that offers over 85 exciting games such as the Pac-Man, Ski-ball, and Slam-A-Winner. There's plenty for the kids, too, such as kiddie go-karts, a coaster, an electric track, swings, and copters. If all that activity makes you famished, head to the Snack Bar and enjoy delicious pizzas, drinks, and candy.
