Don't expect too much even ticket is expensive. However, it's good for child above 10 years old. They will enjoy it

you pay to go and explore the inside of this galleon shop.Actually quite interesting although a bit expensive. But you can board the ship and then descend downstairs to see the cabins where crew would eat, sleep etc. I think it can be very interesting...More

the place is awesome (big pirate ship) but don't expect more..it's like "rumah hantu"/ ghost house which is very not a suitable pace to bring your toddler. with VERY EXPENSIVE PRICE rm27for adult..your kids will cry until the end.don't waste your money..go somewhere elsa!

Initially we thought it will be a half an hour "adventure" regarding pirates, but it was actually less than 10 mins walk inside. It was nice to see, but consider pricey without the stage show. Not recommend for family visit.

We spent over MYR27 each for literally 5 minutes of walking through a few dark rooms looking at some models and then watching a short film. Nothing to learn at all about any history and nothing to really interact with. We were not told that...More

No show, pathetic short movie & yet the price is steep. At least inform that the show is not available and give discount. Else forget about visiting it

Before i decided to enter this place, i read many good reviews frm their official FB. So i thought of giving a chance. I was then feel disappointed with nothing special inside the ship except a place where you can see pirates and took pictures....More
