Opening in May 2019, MISTery park, offers a lush, green landscape of colorful flowers, tall grasses and trees for visitors to explore. In the location of the former Splash Park, misters fill the pathways with a cooling fog while nature sounds from a tropical rain forest play in the background, creating an ideal setting for a close encounter with sloths, which are among the planet’s slowest-moving mammals — so slow, in fact, that algae can grow on their fur in the wild.
