The outside of the building is very promising, and the golden dragon animation is very nicely done. However, inside it is quite disappointing. Several rooms were closed when we visited, including the Houdin rooms upstairs. I assume that then when they re-open the impression would...More

It's much smaller inside than you think when you are outside in front of the building. The first floor (~room) is very nice and entertaining! The top floor is nice, but you're done in less than 3 minutes. It's a pity they didn't mention that...More

Not really sure what I was expecting but I wasn't expecting a child's birthday party type show where it seemed the actual magician/illusionist was on holiday and his less talented mate was standing in. Rather amateur, predictable 'tricks', not very well done however the children...More
