It was a great experience
It was a great experience. The tour is quick and I wish they would allow taking pictures inside, but if you like cinema you must love it. The shuttles bus driver was very nice, and gave us a lot of extra information, that if I would have gone by car would not have had. So I recommend it!
Pretty awesome experience
Pretty awesome experience, especially if you love movies. Not only have they created the scene and props for Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit trilogies, but also many other films that we have grown up. An experience I would and already have recommended to friends and family. The staff are very knowledgeable about the products too!
