Do you need more speed? Ok, more speed will be. Also, add a couple of 180° turns in the middle of the sea on board of a speedboat called Adrenalina at Xel-Há Park.

We are pretty close to the beach, and the heat will be rough. What’s better than splashing into a waterslide? However, Xenses Park waterslide is like no other. Fast, fun and with a spectacular ending.
