It was busy, but the queue for credit card/e-tickets was very short and I just got the tickets in minutes. Go early though to see the free show, which is off site, at the end of your visit. The show is only on Monday to Friday at fixed times and they provide a free shuttle both ways. Alternately hop on the metro 300 meters down the road after the show.
