Henry and I had a lot of fun!

Walking into the Rain Room, you are met with what is essentially a very large black room – almost as big as a warehouse – with bright lights at the end and continuous rainfall from above. Slowly walk into the rain step by step, keeping your distance from others (although I held my son in my arms). Sensors detect your presence and the self-cleaning, recycled water stops where you walk. If you move quickly or make sudden movements, you may actually get wet, but if you walk slowly, you’ll stay dry. It is a very surreal experience and you’ll snap some pretty impressive photos!
