Save your dollars overall disgrace the only thing admiring was the architecture. Overpriced food and drinks we didn't even see tigers on stage they were probly too tired from the abusive trainers what a total waste of time. I wish I flushed cash down the toilet Instead would've had more satisfaction. Story line was crap and so was the acrobatics and annoying russian kicking my chair. Then finding the van at end of the night was another chore 100s exactly the same what a joke.. Get it together thailand!!

Entrance: opulent, colourful, loud and bright. You are ushered from your transport by multiple staff into the grounds for tickets and brief security checks.

Theme: bright, bold and opulent. Huts and statutes, ponds full of koi fish, illuminated rooms and cartoon characters entice you to buy and make the park glow with excitement.

Crowds: families, couples, typically 10 - 40 year olds. People are not patient in crowded places.

Food: fried food was so so. We opted for show only. There was a bar/restaurant but we ran out if time.

Entertainment: fun fair type games and stalls (buy tokens), plenty of shops with souvenirs and merchandise. You can get elephant tides and touch animals for a fee. Animal enclosure looked interesting but some animals looked cramped. They did seem well trained and well fed.

The show: an intense mix of animals on stage, traditional storytelling, magic, acrobats, dance and song with modern lighting and stage equipment. 9pm prompt for 1.5 hours. Arrive 30 mins early to bag up cameras/phones and get expensive photos with animals. It's a pain to get in and out - massive queues and everyone up at the same time!

Grounds: the map is confusing and signage is poor especially if going at night and need the toilet (head for Paddys bar).

Facilities: not well designed for rainy days. Toilets are not well signposted but they are clean. Areas for eating are small.

Transport: hotel transfers have multiple pickups so arrange private transport if possible otherwise it takes a while.

Staff and service: staff are friendly but half are encouraging and half look bored. Toward the end everyone looked tired and the rain didn't help.

Value and prices: 1800 baht for show only is steep but themed parks generally are. It's great fun for kids, young couples and picture opportunities. We laughed during the show as it was dated and mechanical rather than enchanting but it was still a bit of fun.

Dessert choices in the buffet limited. Food rated 3 star.
Everything is expensive once you are in Fantasea, from taking
photos to the souveniers.
Ticket price should be reduced. Avg of 2500 baht per person is too expensive for a simple show.
Magic show was speedy, clumsy and unnecessary.
Gold Seat was cramped & uncomfortable!
I could have spent my money better!!

We went and watched the show last night. We had a great time, but think it is a little overpriced. We opted for the gold seats without dinner, which came out to 4200 Baht for 2 tickets. The place was nice and the show was fun to watch. We had gone elephant trekking earlier in the day for 1000 baht for an hour and place charged 900 for about 10-15 mins. So don't go here just for that. The animals where great here and my guess live better than I do lol. You can't bring your camera, phone, or drinks into the theater just a FYI. They pat you down and make you check them before the show.

The show was great though. It had a lot of Thai culture with some magic and acrobatics. The stage was very nice as was the entire theater.
