Dive with the sharks at Ripley’s Aquarium – You can come face-to-face with snappers, a green sea turtle, giant stingrays, sawfish, and even some large sharks. The two-hour experience includes a behind-the-scenes tour of the aquarium, a pre-dive briefing, the dive with the sharks and a commemorative T-Shirt.

Ay Caramba! Spend some time with The Simpsons – Walk into The Aztec Theater and the home to America’s most beloved cartoon, The Simpsons.

Fulfill your need for speed on the Beach Rider Jet Boat — Known as the roller coaster on water, the Beach Rider Jet Boat continues to be a family favorite when visiting Broadway.
