Xcaret Park in Mexico?

Wednesday, August 2, 2017 1:28 PM

I know this isn't in the sweet spot of this forum, but has anyone been down to this park? Any advice on things to prioritize, or how to maximize the day in the park? Thanks!

I've never been to Knoebels, but I'm pretty sure it's nowhere near the Caribbean Shore of Mexico. Perhaps the Dorney/Hershey thread?

Knoebels is an easy side trip...if you're gonna be in Mexico anyway.

Check out cruisecritic forum, ports of call section, you will get way more information there.

Oh, and while you are down there, swing by Knoebels. Place is amazing. ;)

You guys are all talking about Knobels, but I thought it was overrated. Especially compared to Fuji Q Highland. While you're on Earth, you may as well stop there.


Hey, let's ride (random Intamin coaster). What? It's broken down? I totally didn't expect that.

I haven't been in a decade but I can say for certain that the underground river is a must. I recommend doing that first as it gives you a pretty good overview of the ecological part. Most of the time we ended up just walking around and enjoying the sights and sounds.

Andy, middle line has 8 syllables. You're slipping, old man. Time to start taking the haiku viagra.

Wouldn't Haiku flaccidity mean fewer syllables?

Is "area" really 3 syllables? In Texas it's definitely 2 and has an 'r' at the end.

Multiple Google results for "how many syllables in area" comes up with 3 syllables.

Thanks for all the input. I knew my question was a little out of scope, but I also know this group knows how to optimize a day at a number of parks. It was worth a gamble. B-)

If any of you guys are ever in Portland, I'd be glad to recommend the side trip to Knoebles. It is a magical place.

I would avoid it if I were you. Place isn't even near a major metropolitan area.

But that's what allows the to build low-capacity rides like Turns...

Oh, wait, this isn't FB? Never mind....

Same number of syllables. Just devoid of any action verbs.
