My son who is 3 loves the model village. He can't get enough of the trains, interactive buttons, fish and detailed models all kept in beautiful maintained gardens and ponds. Must see with young children or older generations.

The suspension of reality is the simple reason i enjoyed this attraction when i was younger as i believed that the little people were just waiting for me to go so they could magically come alive and go about their business. This ive since found out is impossible and therefore i dont like it so much. The village on an... More
