Great experience overall

We barely saw the lights (at the end) but it was worth it and they gave us an extra 40 mins to stay in and watch what we could of them. Host/ crew was friendly and professional. I would just say: wrap up warm, and then some. And it would have been good if they could wipe down the seats which were wet (and therefore colder). I would also pay a bit more for a bar service to come to you rather than navigating downstairs in the difficult to maneuver outfit. Also- pee first! It’s hard to get out of the warm suit in the little Loos. But a really good night and would strongly recommend it!
