Seated aboard a comfortable tram you can experience the parting of the Red Sea, meet a 30-ft-tall version of King Kong, be attacked by the ravenous killer shark, and endure a confrontation by aliens armed with death rays.  With a “Front of the Line Pass”, visitors can get priority seating with no wait in line and go behind the scenes after the show to meet the stars (animal or human) and learn about special effects, etc.  The pass is well worth the small additional cost.
