Was not impressed and did not take long to go round, not enough up to date celebrities. It was disappointing.

imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like
the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal

I do apologize but we do not have the Chamber of Horrors anymore, as we update the attraction every 3 to 6 months. Currently we have our Ghostbusters Experience with another exciting attraction coming up in March!
