Anita Thomas 9 months ago 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!
