“A great intro to the pyramids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

I felt this was a great time to sit back and take in the the view of the pyramids. The show is very informative and entertaining. I think it is meant as a basic introduction and the light show did enhance the story.

“AN EXPERIENCE NOT TO BE MISSED”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

The night we went to see this show, there was only about 50 people in the huge auditorium. So it was quite eerie! The show was amazing, very cleverly presented and narrated. It brought to life, as it were, the history of Ancient Egypt and I recommend that visitors make a point of seeing this show.

“interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

Very entertaining show. Good history lesson as well, didn't know what to expect but it was good. Seats weren't the most comfortable and is difficult if some tall sits in front of you. A technicolour light show well worth seeing.

“Used to be good”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

The sound and light show, I have been told used to be good. But when I visited the same in Feb 2013, it was not really great. The lights and effects seemed good but most of it was not audible. It is in open, dusty, uncomfortable seats and not great value in my opinion

“a little boring”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

At first I thought it was going to be an artsy light show however it turned out to be a history lesson. Not bad but a little boring after the beginning.
