the rides are good, where the whole family can participate. but it would be better to have more kind of rides as it becomes a bit repetitive after 2 rides

Visited with 2 teenagers, who both have a keen sense of adventure. They found this activity very boring. And hopelessly over priced. We only stayed for 2 rides each and left. Staff at kiosk not very helpful either.More

Surprised about your comment as I believe that R25.00 for one ride when you share a "Happy Family Combo' ticket is not expensive at all. And should there be leftover rides than you can even keep it and use them next time as they do...More

10 out of 10. As a mother, I could not stop riding the rides. Every ride is just not enough, you want to ride again and again. Definitely worth every penny. Great family entertainment.
