I had a lovely time here. Finally got to ride the Back to the Future ride. Favourite and best ride was Spiderman 4D. Toootally awesome. I think I went twice. Thank God for single rider! Terminator show was also good. Jurassic Park was cool and Waterworld was amazing too. Saw the Sesame Street bus and it was cute. The night Light parade was also very good. Overall its a fun and awesome theme park. Highly recommended.

Most of the rides are thrilling...if you visit during summer holiday and only want to spend 1 day in this theme park...you have to consider to get fast pass as the line will be long for major rides such as Spider-Man...by having fast pass, you only need to queue for 5 to 10 minutes instead of 30-45 minutes. They have special lines for fast pass. They also have hello kitty area...the staff are wonderful n friendly. To save money, there are a lot of vending machines in front of main gate...most of the shows are well prepared. To make your day even better...bring light raincoat...as you might be splashed with water in some rides and shows. Most of major rides provide storage locker where you can store your belongings and I consider quite safe as they can be locked and we can bring the key with us
