The ticket price is 450 if you're more than 20 people, you can get a discount prices. Worth to go. It's good to bring your kids there. They can learn sth there. Or maybe do some activity there

Been here and it’s not crowded at all during weekdays. Ticket priced at TWD450 per adult. Their souvenir is inexpensive and wide range of variety to choose from. You should be able to spend few hours at this place! Recommended to all.
