From the carousel to the tower of terror, the golden loops and anaconda, it’s only a heart race of emotion and adrenaline. Wonderful theme park. However, the queues are so long that one day might not be enough sometimes!

Nothing to rave about really. Once you have been it's enough. No need to return.Rather visit ethnic African curio stalls at various sites.

A good day out for the family, slightly over priced restaurants but a captive market is expected. Good entertainment for the kids.
