The attraction is excellent for children of all ages. Lots for them to see and do; most of it hands on. However the food prices are outrageous. €14.90 for a burger and a child size portion of fries.

I chose weekend for visiting this place. Too crowded so I couldn't do or see all the activities. I missed more interaction or explanation from the staff to the customers to learn from the visit.
