What should basically be just a very long tunnel, actually turns out pretty interesting with all the light exibitions and the music. But it's better to do it by bike, cause its pretty long and become monotonous at some point!

Such fun and what a novelty! Riding through a tunnel while being entertained by light and sound shows. We enjoyed it so much we went back the next day to catch a different show.

This was such a fun walk!! It was a hot day when we went but it is definitely worth the walk. I haven't seen anything like it before and really enjoyed myself.
