Great selection of restaurants to visit. Nice variety of entertainment for the youngsters. Movie house good enough. Service a bit slow at the food kiosks in the movie house area.

Kids loved the go-carting. The shopkeepers inside Carnival City are definitely not fond of kids though - so steer cleer and don't dare touch anything!! That is except for the memorabilia/collectible/dress-up shop (those stiletto's!!!) with interesting imported goodies - a must see! Also went to...More
