Then what is use of charging such high entry fees. Food and water is very expensive inside. No longer VGP is attractive, just looting tourists.

Half of the rides do not work compared to the entry fees charged. Beach is clean. Overall maintenance and stuff quality can be improved. Good for Kids over 5 years.

more than the beach the amusement park takes all the credit if this place. water slides are amazing. although a bit expensive it deserves a visit from the children. lots of swings and slides. if you go there make sure you have 4 to 6 hours of time to enjoy this place.
