    About our kids (5 and 7), which found it super, although they speak neither Spanish nor English. Haber but in 3h ws. only half seen... especially the panels (as Dino and Mummy) enjoyed the children as well as the old aircraft in the courtyard. So for kids up to 10 years a really great thing.

    My 16 moths old baby had a lot of fun, we spent almost the entire day there. We took our own food, they only have one restaurant and its small and the service is slow, plus they don´t have a lot of variety.
