  • 標示有點不清楚,如果不問人,找個洗手間會找蠻久的。 商店賣的東西大同小異,很多商品在很多家店都看得到,只有咬人貓麵包比較特別一點 
  • Family visit.The scale is smaller then expected. Setup with monster theme odd things here and there. Many shops, eateries, souvenirs to buy. 2-3 hours is enough in this place.

  • Very small, can finish all the walk path with just less than 5 minutes, not worth it if you just come to see this place, but the decoration still cool, and most of the staff make up to be like monster
  • Interesting place, unique from other sites in Taiwan. Pretty small, but the nearby forests have trails you can walk along and enjoy the scenery
  • Simply a tourist attraction. Good ford kids, but quite crowded.
  • One of the most hidden gem in Taiwan, hidden in the nice forest reserve. Great scene, Nice food, nice people.
  • Exotic atmosphere at night about this monster village , very close to the gate of forest.
