Experience

Koda's Adventure

Koda and his father arrived at Caballococha in eastern Peru, marking the beginning of their long-awaited journey into the Amazon rainforest. Every night, Koda found it difficult to fall asleep. While lying under his blankets, he sketched everything he had seen during the day. Visitors will be able to experience his imagination come to life through our luminous lights and lanterns! However, perhaps due to his excitement, his memories and imagination started to merge, creating a magical fusion of animals and plants… Koda needs your help to find his missing memory fragments. If you successfully help him recall his memories, he will have a gift waiting for you at the end! Make sure to read each hint carefully and pay attention as you make your way through this adventure to redeem your prize!

Live Performances

Music

The guzheng and pipa are traditional Chinese plucked string instruments commonly used to play folk music, and they remain popular to this day. While the guzheng is normally played with finger picks made from materials such as plastic and tortoiseshell, the pipa is hand-picked. Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy live performances of the guzheng and pipa somewhere along Koda’s Adventure!

Dance

The peacock dance is a famous performance originating from the Dai ethnic group in Yunnan, China. It mimics the graceful movements of a peacock, which is believed to symbolize luck, kindness, and beauty. It is often performed with costumes and masks to further resemble a peacock.
