  • Nice! The experience is memorable. The children liked the 3, 4 and 5D tours.
  • Great experience for adults and kids, fantastic space and VR/3D attractions. Giving 4 stars because we had an issue with the online tickets (barcode not opening from email, already booked and paid in advance) and the first customer service lady didn't really make an effort to help. Only when a second rep got involved it was easily solved (lack of interest from the first rep, second one was very helpful and nice). There was no queue when we arrived so she couldn't argue any type of pressure. Other than that, the experience was absolutely fantastic!
