“Different and educational”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

We stopped off here on the way back to our hotel and wasn't disappointed. It was good value (12E) and lasted about an hour. I did feel a bit shaky a few times but it was good fun and gave us a brief and easy to understand Rome history. I am not a history buff at all and this was a good way of getting my head around the basics. A nice way to sit down for an hour and see a different side to Rome.

“Amazing for kids and funny for parents”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

An excellent alternative for a funny Sunday with kids: it does not give only historical and multisensorial experience of Rome, but it is a funny journey across Rome history (with many surprises during the show!) .... maybe the Rome's histroy is too much "fincionalized" but it helps to let kids keep in mind a bit of the boring Rome's history.... my 3-year old son is maybe too young for that, but my 3 nephews loved it (aged 7, 11 and 14). The second show on the life evolution was extremely informative and exciting (it is 5 D)...thrilling for me too! This is maybe the only different and special thing you can do in Rome to let 4 pest-kids have fun far from customery ruins in the city centre. At the reception it was told they are working on an extra section regarding Romans life which will be ready later this year, and I am willing to come back again to see if it's worthy like the shows. Nice experience!

“Maybe someone should have warned us!”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

We read about this in The Lonely Planet and it seemed like a good idea…but we were extremely disappointed. First of all, it doesn't really give you much information about the history of Rome. We were hoping our kids would come out of it with a greater appreciation for and understanding of the things they were likely to see walking the streets of Rome….but that didn't happen. Instead, they were assaulted with scary and bloody images, filled with pity by unnecessary descriptions and scenes of Jesus' life, and freaked out by fake "rat" effects that attacked their ankles. I think parents should be warned. I'm not sure this film is suitable for kids, and I'm not sure this film is worth the money for adults.

“Nice with kids”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

A nice attraction to visit with kids in Rome. Quite interesting and nice souvenirs to buy there. You can also use the advantage of purchasing a combined ticket to the time elevetor and the colosseum - this will save you the line later....

“Waste of Time”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

Waste of time...and over priced. A simulator that gives you information you probably already know about Rome. If anything, it is good for kids...but nothing special.
