The Flying Aces is a must try. Also, once you arrive there go straight to the go karting game to book your game for the day (tickets run out very fast once the theme park open)

Two coasters worth riding but overall not a place worth visiting. You're not missing out on anything. Unless your kids really love "ferrari" then don't bother

Loved the 240-kmh coaster, but also the second coaster is good. Too much lines at the simulator, the rest is ok. It's indoors and well a/c'd. Fun place for kids and kids-alike. Plan at least 5-6 hrs.

You need like 2 days to finish everything and to play each game! In weekends its impossible to do anything! Not suitable with babies. The fastest roller coaster is a must!
