Wildwood Grove is a fantastic addition to the park and very well done. Nice touches everywhere, including the covered areas for parents to sit and relax. The indoor play area has soo many different things for different ages and abilities. The area itself is gorgeous and fits into the overall theming of the park. This should prove to be a very good investment for the park and receive great reviews from the public.
I missed this the first time looking through these comments. You really hit the nail on the head there. They didn't skimp in any way when they made this area. So many nice touches and just a sprawling new land in the back of the park.

I notice the Vekoma train has a strange cage / netting type structure on - I wonder why the clearances have made this necessary.
Yeah, I do wonder that, too. I know the ride flies pretty low to the ground and over some areas of the park. Maybe they thought it wasn't terribly obstructive and would help with loose articles flying out? I really have no clue.

I think that terminology is just a little gimmicky. It is just Mexican-inspired food, at least as Americans know it. Bowls with some rice, pico, and meat, etc. But it is tasty and something different from the rest of the food in the park!
