“Go-carts and concerts”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

Kids loved the go-carting. The shopkeepers inside Carnival City are definitely not fond of kids though - so steer cleer and don't dare touch anything!! That is except for the memorabilia/collectible/dress-up shop (those stiletto's!!!) with interesting imported goodies - a must see! Also went to a concert and thoroughly enjoyed the vibe.

“Depressing casino vibe”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

We went there to watch a music show which went well. The theatre has good acoustic qualities, which is a bonus after seeing bands perform in the dreadful Coca Cola dome, which has terrible acoustics. The whole place is a massive casino complex with the usual array of mostly poor people looking sad and demoralised.

“Fun”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

From the time you walk in to the time you leave you do not stop looking at the amazing way that they built this place. the children are taken care of from the celing to the carpets, there is a big magic compant there and a place where you can leave your kids so that they can entertain thenselves for hours while the adults go and gamble. the food is out of this world from Chinese to Lotto Foods large buffet, endless eating and having fun.

“Old times charm”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

Carnival City still retains its old world charm with its decor and hospitality. Service is still good. A nice weekend getaway for a couple.
