it was amazing....rides for kids are plenty but adults only few but all adrenaline filled ones..food options inside are limited but outside plenty, burger King was a disappointment.its best to go on weekday to avoid long lines. also its better if u have arrangement for return as the online taxi service didn't have free vehicles n taxi on road were expensive so don't miss the frè return shuttle or pre book a cab.
