“Had a really awesome day today. Came on a Thursday so lines were pretty short. It was so so exciting seeing the superheroes in the main square. The kids had a great day as did the adults. The food was reasonably priced considering it’s a theme park (way cheaper than Disney & Universal) & same with the souvenirs. Great place & I really want to come back one day! Batman & Green Lantern were my personal faves to see & the kids loved the parade. Its the most interactive parade I’ve been to.” – E.N.C.

“Excited that more adult rides are being made. My 5 star rating though is purely for how environmentally conscious they are. It is obvious how much they care for the world and the animals and I think it’s awesome that they’re using their shows to educate young kids while also including some fun tricks. Drastically different to what the American Sea World is and I’m so happy about it!” – Emily Chadwick
