This is a place you go for the experience. With that in mind, you won't be disappointed. They opened at 9 (we went on a Wednesday), we arrived at 10 and the wait was about 90 minutes (which was quite accurate). We spent the time...More

We have visited here many times, and have always enjoyed it. But our latest visit was one of the best because we went late on a weekday during the winter. The place gets very crowded on weekends and in the summer it is HOT (the...More
