This production was shambolic, over priced and amateur, certainly not a spectacular. We love the Genting and have attended many concerts and used the VIP dining package which has been great. We booked tickets and spent over £400 and were very disappointed. The sound was...More

I paid over £300 for 4 seats to see Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds for a 60th Birthday present, only to find we had a restricted view. We could see the stage clearly but the video screen, that is such an integral part of...More

Very disappointing. Sound not good, there were distractions in the form of acrobats at the side of the stage which took your attention away from action on stage, some of this was difficult to see from our seats. Four adults and one child and none...More

It was good, to be honest I expected a lot better. With all the hype about it and the tickets weren't cheap, I expected more. I thought it would have had more elements of a pantomime. The queue to get in the building was ridiculous,...More

Absolutely awful. What a waste of £100 I left with my 12 year old in tears well before the end. We were sat at the end of a row and next to us where a couple who managed to drink through 2 bottles of wine...More

The restaurants close by are always rammed. Best to log on the website and book in advance. The food inside overpriced and not great.
