We took in the paddle steamer cruise and the evening laser light show along with the pioneer village. Terrific value at $66 each and so well done in terms of recreating our pioneering history. The devonshire tea in the cafe was a highlight!

We have seen Pioneer Village several times, but not the night show. Excellent use of water, sound, light and fire. For 40 minutes it seemed a little expensive, however we did enjoy the show.
