    Had a great time, my 4 yr old really enjoyed it! The balloon guy added a signature touch making my daughter a frog balloon with her name on it. The boat ride under the restaurant was icing on the cake! Great job with the atmosphere & thunderstorm every 30 mins! We enjoyed it and will be back!

    It was fine. Food was good. There wasn’t much of an experience. More of the decorations than anything. We’ve been to the one in Kansas City several years ago and it has a lot more to do. Was basically just dinner. Nothing special. We checked in about an hour early for our reservation and were told we would be sat in about 5 minutes. We waited and watched many people get seated. Finally at the time of our reaction we got a message asking if we were coming because our table was ready and if we were to text back. We responded and were sat. Didn’t even get the “Safari party” call like the other diners. Was disappointed that we reserved several days in advance and still has to wait while others walked up and were sat strait away because someone didn’t check us in.

    First . We were seated by the waterfall . My autistic daughter was very anxious and overwhelmed . Secondly . We made 2 reservations of six purposely so we weren’t charged their outrageous gratuity but we’re all seated together anyway upon arrival . Literally if a 3 inch gap between the tables would have prevented us from bein forced to leave an 80 dollar tip we’d have been perfectly fine with that. Our server was wonderful for sure. But we were a very minimal service table and easy as could be . 80 was extremely Steep . I asked to speak to a manager after receiving all of our tickets with a “suggested” gratuity of $10-30 dollars per ticket that wasn’t suggested at all but already calculated in with zero options available to Tip At your own discretion. We were forced to tip the amount they “suggested” leaving the server with a total of a very heft tip between the multiple tickets at the table . The managers entire encounter from the first moment was beyond rude when I was just tryin to understand how any of this was legal … she informed me in a very crude manner that it didn’t matter what I was saying the gratuity was in place because of the 12 top. Which mind you . Became a 12 too at their decision instead of two tables of six. So just beware . Felt pretty robbed for a table of single moms on vacation with their children just tryin to give them an experience .

    I made reservations but still had to stand in line. I don't see the point of reservations when you still have to wait. The service was awful. I took my girls there while on vacation, and I suppose the waitress assumed I didn't have money or was disappointed we were not a big group of people. Unfortunately for her, I reflected her tip on her inattentive service. I would not recommend this place. I had excellent service at all the places we ate on the island, except here.

    I was not very pleased with the Korean stir fry. Unfortunately my chicken was very very tough. The server was amazing and she even offered to have it recooked however we had already waited for at least 40min . My daughter’s shrimp was very crunchy as well. Other than that, it was still a good experience .

    My kids really enjoyed it today. They were all smiles and it was just a great experience. The only complaint is my request wasn’t honored. But it was no big deal once I saw my kids smiles and enjoying themselves. we still had fun.
