Visit was pleasant - best to visit not during school holidays as lines are shorter. All rides awesome for young & old. One can spend the entire day at the theme park entertained. Lovely onsite restaurants.

Walking around you get the theme park vibe, plus history, you can shop, eat and drink, catch shows and of course go on all the rides if you dare!
