  • Oh my my! This is a wonderful place be it the ambience to different adventures! Love the rides! They are so worth it that the wait time doesn’t even bore you! Hulk is my favorite! For vegetarians, it is advisable to carry food with you since you wouldn’t find anything satisfying! A general recommendation to everyone- we never spent time going to restaurant since everything is so busy. We carried snacks and had quick bites during wait time. That way we saved plenty of time. Also, a good option is to go for single riders and cover many rides. This way you can also go for rides you like 2-3 times. Place is well maintained. They justify every penny they charge for entry!
  • I had the best experience in my life. Thanks to the incredible fantastic handsome Captain America (the best one I’ve seen so far). That guy was so nice to everyone. He was greeting and talking nicely to every single person taking pictures with him. I’m in love. Thanks, handsome!! ♥️
