Too many local kids who are allowed to visit the place for free. They shout, make all noises and anything worth seeing is already broken. This place is not meant for foreign tourists. Please dont go. You would have many such places in your own country.

This was our best part in Amman trip. Must go and i would say kids of all ages will have a ball. It has lots of play activities which try to emulate daily tasks. Very clean and well maintained. Quite cheap tickets too
