Not very impressed with the outing. No highlights to mention. More for people that would like to take photo's. The dirt road to get there is not easy.

The setting is great, children enjoyed it! Loved the diner, their food is simple but very tasty. Not even to mention their milkshakes, real roadhouse milkshakes, yummy! Think the entrance is reasonable.

We enjoyed the afternoon out with the family but the price is not justified at all. I think that the owners should urgently look at the upgrading and maintenance of this venue. I thought it to expensive

If you like looking at paint dry, then this is the place for you. There is nothing "Pret" in Pretville, don't waste your money on this stop.

This is a quirky fun place to visit. I think if the entrance was lower more people would be happier to do the 5-10 min walk through. We paid R70 and I would have been completely satisfied with the experience if it were under R40.
