Nice place to go on a sunny day with kids. Some of the attraction are free some you have to pay for, like climbing wall, shooting gallery, Segway, etc.

The cable car is being rebuilt at the moment sadly - but take the replacement bus up to the top. There's a mini fair, rides, stalls, bars, a climbing wall, a zoo and fabulous views of the TV Tower and city. Recommended.

I took my 11 year old son here last weekend, overall, he enjoyed himself. But each ride has a different person working and they often tried to charge me more than what they did the next person.

Take the Old cable car ride to the top of Kok-Tube hill. It will soon be closed and replaced fully with the new one. The Old one was built back in soviet 1970-s.
