A pedestrian-only tunnel crossing the Bund, this fun and unique form of public transportation is a pricey but quick way to get across the river on foot. The experience is a bit reminiscent of a Disney Tomorrowland attraction.

The ride was a major let down - and I had read many of the previous reviews. In the future, if I felt like spending the money (30 Yuan per person one way), I would only use this as a quick way to Pudong. The laser light show was not impressive, but the cable car was fun and spacious. One... More

I never heard about this tunnel before and I just saw the sign. So I went down to purchase the ticket to Pudong side. I did not expect anything and it turned out to be an exciting tunnel ever.

I pay 50 RMB for the worst attractions. This old attractions has no purpose or whatsoever. The illumination and background sounds is totally unmatch. It seems like they made this attraction on early 80s and never consider to renew it. Back to the future is so much better than this. Go take a Ferry for 2 RMB if you willing... More

The tunnel and it's moving cars is very different. Lots of fun and a speedy way to get from the Bund to Pudong. The price is reasonable, 70 yuan round trip. The light show on the trip is very interesting.

It's so bad that it doesn't even fit into the so-bad-it's-good category, however it does take you from the Bund to the base of the Oriental Pearl Tower. Other than that, there's nothing really going for it. It really is as crap as the reviews say.

As others have said it's just a tunnel with an underwhelming and epilepsy-inducing light display. Really not worth the price. If you need to get to Pudong take the metro or the ferry: it's much cheaper.

If you are also from Europe this might not really be what you were expecting - I kind of thought to would be a walk through tunnel (you can tell how much research I'd done...). Basically it's a few minutes in a little underground car (about the same size as a cable car) and lots of flashing lights as you... More

This is very very random but that's not necessary a bad thing! We were going to the other side of the bund anyway and this was different that the metro and we quite enjoyed it too! I would say do the one way ticket as once you have seen it you will be satisfied as it is a glorified underground... More

I'm sure lots of reviews will say this is awful, but it was just so strange and cheesy I had to love it! The flashing lights, the Enya-style music, the arm waving tube men, the non-sensical voiceovers.... EVERYONE WHO GOES TO SHANGHAI MUST DO THIS!
