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.

The journey through this pirate adventure is nothing more than just walking through a dark corridor with some live and some dummy pirates and watching an ordinary video of a ship sailing in a stormy sea with no real suspense.
