Great show despite the rain

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Because of the rain the outdoor welcome was hurried but completed indoors. The 4D presentation was amazing but maybe a little scary for young children . The interactive section at the end was most informative adding to our knowledge of the area
