I didn't like to book online only. We have had a great time, but the boat ride was a bit misleading. I expected being on the real river. The whole day experience would have been much better without constant background music.

Absolutely wonderful, once in a lifetime experience. So much to see and do, the River Ride was a great extra but seeing the pandas so close was the absolute highlight

The headshot ticketing was a nightmare on arrival at the venue as I had bought 6 tickets Ann's had to individually go through the codes SMS numbers to bring up the bar code to enter. I would NEVER BUY THEM THAT WAY AGAIN!! The whole walk was so well put together and loved every bit of it..

It was a good experience for my family. But, unfortunately, we could not experience the Amazon River Quest (Boat Ride) due to under maintenance. It would be convenient to have that information mentioned clearly at the time of booking. Just a suggestion.

Had a small incident with another grp of visitor at the boat ride station. The staff (Rafiz or Afiz) was very helpful and tactful in managing the situation. Kudos that he even offered a wavier of the ride fees but I said no worries. Keep up the good work.
