Instead, during one of my visits I decided to make the most of my free admission to the parks simply to enjoy the atmosphere. During this visit in mid-August I only went to the park for an hour and a half and I saw that the park was extremely busy. I didn't feel the need to do any rides, I simply walked around looking at the details around the park, took some photos and left. It was a nice and relaxing way to see the par
