We took my nephews here as it was the youngest ones birthday and we thought it would be suitable. Was very disappointed, the staff seemed uninterested and didn't have a clue what they was doing, very rude and there was hardly any of them. Also, staff that didn't speak or understand any English which was difficult when we was trying... More
