This attraction features "17 pools, 10 Slides, 16 cliff jumps, and two rappelling positions connected by steep staircases and tunnels giving it a maze-like appearance. With cliff jumps as high as 7.5 meters and pools ranging from depths of 1.5 meters to 6 meters this attraction definitely causes an adrenaline rush similar to what you would experience out in the natural canyons."
