The caves were very well done. The lighting is good to prevent running into stalagmites and there are hand rails to prevent slipping. The Eisa performance was fun, however no photos or videos are allowed. The habu show was entertaining, they have the show prerecorded...More

10:30,12:30,14:30&16:00. I guess you can spend 2-3 hours in other areas & won't get boared to wait for show.
