Dissatisfied

We booked and went to the treat grounds thinking it was the same thing. We were informed it was an hour drive between we then asked for a refund and someone was going to get back to us. Still waiting for them to call us to discuss the refund process.I guess we are the stupid tourist and a quick buck was made by company. Disappointed that there is no follow up regarding something that was our fault but also an innocent fault on our side. We would still welcome a phone call or discussion about this

Beautiful experience!!

I took my international group here today and was so proud of the interactive and informative teachings we had today. From the building with short videos and games to the guided tour with our amazing knowledgeable guide through to the show we experienced with little surprises in and around the auditorium, we thoroughly enjoyed it. The kids prices were great too for families. Very proud of the fact that every building, the grounds and their facilities were VERY clean!! Too many attractions that our international and also our own people visit aren't kept to a clean standard, but this place is! Will be telling everyone who will listen to go and visit this place.
