Great place to visit but it was massive so come prepared!

Love how easy it was to use the booking system. And once we arrived it was quick and easy. Just tell them my last name with who we booked with. But do come prepared the place is huge. The cruise ride was pretty good and relaxed. They also had free tour for the day which was good!
