It also offers several activities for kids, such as the WaterScape pool area, which offers splash pads, shallow pools, and plenty of decorative items to climb on. If you enjoy military history, don't skip a visit to the Air Force Armament Museum. It's full of fantastic mementos from years gone by, as well as tributes to Air Force heroes.
