This one-of-a-kind indoor tribute depicts honor, respect, and remembrance of those who have given the ultimate sacrifice of their lives. They gave all in hopes of protecting our freedom. This particular attraction pays tribute and shows respect to today’s active duty military, police officers, and firefighters. Anyone who puts themselves in harm’s way on a daily basis to help maintain our way of life is truly a hero. These people may be protecting us from here or far across the world.
