Never again. We are too old. The prices are a rip off. The website tells you to buy a ride card for various amounts. There was no need. You can pay as you go. I think we left $10 on the prepaid ride card, non redeemable. The worst thing was the killer loud pop music played by the rides. It was just awful, a cacophony of music coming from all directions that was just noise.
I expected food to be expensive and it was, perhaps even more than airport prices.
Two rides on a long slide were needed but you can only buy three. One ride went to waste.
Face painting, very good but $25!
I think Hippie Niece misheard the stall attendant and did not realise it was $40 to throw three balls into a bucket to receive a large stuffed toy. The balls just bounced out of the bucket when thrown or hit the rim which was not allowed. Between them I think R and Hippie Niece spent $140 on this, and did receive a rather nice and colourful large bear, which then had to be carried around. I think it was a sympathy prize.
One great niece wasn't interested in rides and one was. Hippie Niece took her on an 'adventurous' roller coaster. Apparently she was ok until the vehicle turned upside down. There were tears. I could have told Niece but I kept my mouth shut.
The twins did enjoy themselves, especially the very large petting zoo. Compared to when they were younger, at six years old now, they are really good kids. The even give Grumpy Auntie Andrew a hug when they greet him.
Anyway, it is the last visit to the show for us and I can't recommend a visit. How families manage to pay the prices for a few kids astonishes me. The animals are fun to watch, especially the goats.
