One of the neat things about Cocos Island is the way you enter it. You start up in the stratosphere - use a teleporter (which is frankly the coolest one I've seen so far) and land on a boat in the ocean.
You get yourself on an inflatable and are transported by water to the island.
From there you can explore the fabulous landscape they've created.
An additional benefit of course is the sound track that Dizzy has created. It's just lucky that nobody could see my typist dancing in her chair! :)
