This is always a favourite visit in Victoria for us. The huge screen and sound system are terrific. Bonus getting to watch a 3D movie here. Will get one more visit in before going home

We watched Amazon 3d as a family and the kids loved it. The 3d was amazing. Everything was so close and real. The show itself was great. If you get a pass for the museum as well it's a better bang for your buck.More

Hello - we are considering staying at this resort in July. We are two families of 4, four adults plus two 15 year olds and two 12 year old children. Has anyone stayed in the 3 bedroom suite? Would it be big enough to accommodate our two families?
