I expected more from this place for the price. Its still fun but could be so much more modern with new displays. We paid $70 for a family of 4 and i was disappointed. It has so much potential.

Yes, we have an elevator especially for wheelchair access, and the attraction is flat all the way through. Our friendly staff will take you to the elevator and into the show.
