2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better April 2016

This experience wasn't quite what I had in mind. The venue caters to tourists - the place was empty with the exception of a few tour groups and you enter through a gift shop. The show itself wasn't something I found interesting, as it was slow moving. We were brought in early, waited, saw an hour-long show, and were brought back to our hotel. The transportation was nice, but I wouldn't repeat the experience.
