Recommendation Plan to go to the dome gardens for when it rains (mostly between 12-3) and explore the outside attractions first or after.  The interior gardens are air-conditioned so you might want to bring a light sweater.  

Buy a shuttle ticket to get around from place to place, especially if you have kids.  

Good idea to combine this attraction with the Skypark in the late afternoon before sunset for spectacular views!

Wear really good shoes, the complex is large and will require lots of walking.  Don't forget to bring a swimsuit and towel for the kids (Waterpark is Free by the way)

Wear sunscreen if you plan to explore outside.  Bring water and snacks!
