“Malta's History all in 25 minutes - Spectacular”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

If you come to Malta you MUST see the 5D experience. It took us 7 days to decide, and while we re-visited Valletta four times during our week-long stay in Malta, it was on our last day and final 3 hours before our flight that we took the number 22 bus from our B&B in Sliema to have the best coffee and fruit tart at Cafe Cordina, followed by the 5D experience. Our chairs moved as we flew over Malta, we were speared by the swords of the Knights and flew high above the fleet of naval ships during the invasion of World War II. From the first inhabitants 7,000 years ago (yes, 7,000 years) throughout history, the Turks whose fleet of ships came to invade Malta, only to be defeated by Captain Vallett and his Knights, and then the city named after Him..., followed by many other countries who came to fight for posession of Malta's fortresses, lifestyle and wealth, only to be defeated once again, the 5D film shows how Malta, over the centuries has survived countless enemies and been bombarded by spears, arrows, cannon balls and missiles, only to withstand the batterings and show why Malta is a virtual impenetrtable fortress like no other.
So, take the 25 minutes to see the 5D experience, it's quite spectacular, brilliantly narrated and filmed, with amazing 3D digital effects, snakes at your ankles, wind in your hair, salt spray in your face and a thrill ride from above as you fly high with the Maltese Falcon.
It took us long enough to see it, make sure you do to.
I know I went overboard with my explanation, and we did get to see it for 5 euros instead of the normal 9 euros, but it was just sensational.

PS, did you know there are more maltese people in Australia than the whole of Malta!

“Shaky seats !!”
Reviewed February 13, 2014 via mobile

This is a bit pricey for a 20 minute show , as an adult I'd like if to have been a bit more indepth but if you're bringing kids it's brilliant . It really is a great experience and loads of fun , families should certainly give it a go , it's great for the big kid in all of us. !

“Worth it”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

You might think that the price is a little steep for what is essentially a short show, but I really did feel like I got my money's worth from this one. Really original, informative, and entertaining. Staff are also very courteous and helpful.

“One for the kids”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

If you want something to give yourself and the kids a quick and certainly NOT boring introduction to Malta and its history this is certainly what should be placed at the top of your list of things to do.

Shaking seats, stuff coming out of the screen at you, wind in our hair and a surprise or two which shouldn't be spoilt by a review such as this will make your visit one to remember.

You can also buy the 'Malta Pass' here but beware at this time of the year it is worth pre-booking as we found that they didn't have enough for our party and we had to wait a couple of hours for the passes to be delivered - when on a limited time stay this was quite inconvenient!
