Enjoy an educational experience you won’t find anywhere else from the new amphitheater seating, followed by a battle reenactment set on an island somewhere in the Pacific. Hear the rattle of machine gun fire, the echoing blast of grenades, and feel the searing heat of the flamethrower as the joint US forces take the Japanese controlled hill.
