  • I really liked this huge layout. How many forces and labour needed to author! Very interesting if you look at the detail. Besides, everyone there as living ... cars, trains, subways. ... There are more buttons on that too you need to press and take a closer look (people like come to life).

  • Read reviews about Grand layout and, in principle, imagine that I see. But no, my impressions exceeded my expectations. Liked it very much and I and members of my family (husband and two daughters, 17 and 22 years old), which at first I barely managed to go there, and then could not pull out from there. Liked that periodically "over the country" goes down night and ignited the light in homes. Don't be surprised if, in the future, layout by visiting discover there and rain and snow)). At least lightning is already there. There is also an active button pressed, you can trigger the "inhabitants"-even the little hens come alive and start pecking seeds. Or starts "real" fire, fire, House smokes calculation starts putting out home "water". Trains, automobiles also move. Vobschem, total and not simply to describe, it should be seen.

  • In terms of human labor and painstaking engineering-course 5 points. But in General, for an adult without children wildly boring. When I walked in here, I thought I would see a really detailed layout of our country. I did not see ... Price for the ticket is clearly not justifiable, the Hermitage stands not much more expensive, but it is the Hermitage. In General through 15 minutes of stay a sense of boredom. Even the kids get bored ... The second time I have here don't exactly come. P.s. Still confused pervasive product placement.
