    Reasonable cost too. Might be something worth looking into, eh Dawn?

    Not sure yet! I bet they'd tell you on the booking line though.

    As far as I know, it's not yet "officially, properly opened" and is still in soft opening mode for another few days.

    I suspect there'll be more announcements this/next week

    I won a Star Wars Monopoly game. We weren't told there was a prize....you do it just for fun.

    Our session lasted about 90 minutes..
    I would definately do it again.

    It was quite hard to find....even the bus driver was unsure of where to drop us off. It's situated near the bike sheds at Ft Wilderness.
