A travel blog entry by jason152z on Mar 20, 2015

The name Thermal Wonderland seems a little mystical by first hearing, and to a certain extent it was a little 'wonderlandish' but to be highly critical this wasn't a wonderland.

He also would pull us into small waterfalls and let the water pound over you and into your face. I think that part would be the closest I would ever like to come to being waterboarded. Overall, it was a ton of fun and I would do it again in a heartbeat!
