My favorite family vacation was when we went to the Atlantis Paradise Island Resort in the Bahamas. The flight took about 2 1/2 hours. The resort was detailed in trying to seem like an ancient civilization. The water rides in Aquaventure were the best. I really liked the Abyss, the Leap of Faith and the Power Tower.

All the rides were fast and scary. If you go, you need to try them. The food was delicious. It was like a food paradise because there were so many different restaurants.

I also liked the Dolphin Cay. We got to pet a dolphin named Kelly and play with her.
