Really enjoyed the show ,all team members were polite and helpful . At the start when the cast were entering trough the stalls ,one of the elephants tusks hit my wife on the head ,made her jump but no injury sustained and we saw the funny side of the situation , when the cast had passed us a team member approached immediately to check all was well with genuine concern . this did not spoil the experience at all .
