“A great atmosphere but an average show”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

I was taken by the scenery, the system and the surrounding of fantasea more than the show, If you have been to any circ du soleil you will find fantasea show average. But the thai experience they let you in, is what makes it a good visit.

“Let Down ”
Reviewed 15 August 2014 via mobile

I was really looking forward to the show. It was carnival/circus themed. It is spread out over a couple of achers and is a decent drive out of Karon.
It didn't have any rides but was aimed at people spending money on buying stuffed animals and over priced souvenirs.

The show started 21:00.
The sercurty was very strict. We had to check in our phones and other people their cameras before the show started.

The music of the show was very loud.
The costumes were all very beautiful. The show didn't really have a story line which I thought it would have. They used up to 16 elephants in the show. I felt sorry for the elephants as the music was very load and there were laser lights everywhere. The show went for about an hour and a half. At the end, my friend and I were really unimpressed. We wished we had gone to the Simon caberet or the Siam.
I wouldn't recommend it.

“It's just ok”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

It's a large place.
Many shops arcade games restaurants before reaching the main auditorium which I very large and decorated like a forest.

Show is good for children but nothing Amazing

Shops and games before show are overly priced an waste of money.

Buffet we did not like it much but there price is reasonable.

I guess Fantasea is advertised so much that every tourist goes there some love it and some well....

Don't make fantasea a priority but if you have a free evening why not. The overall experience is good.

“Had high expectations”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

I'd been told I 'had' to go to Fantasea. So had high expectations..it was good. A lot of effort and planning has gone into this place. To feed, transport and entertain thousands of people each night as effortlessly as they do is remarkable. You can't take any photographic equipment into the show, which means 95% of people need to check in their equipment before and collect after the show, but each experience was done quite quickly, especially given the amount of people. The buffet food was good. Show had some great parts, you can see the effort put into this production. The animals are always a favorite. The biggest disappointment is the amount of rude people leaving as the show was finishing. My children loved the themed shops and characters. With young children I would try to see the first show, not the 9pm show.
