All of their shows are amazing and it is always so comical while also being captivating. I have been there a lot and they always have something new on show and it is amazing to watch the room transform into a water poll.

I'm not sure I'm sorry. However if you call the box office, who I found very helpful when booking, I'm sure they would advise of any discounts. Sorry I can't offer a definitive answer. Regards Anthony Matthews
