There is no point in being harsh about a free experience and the idea of having a sound and light show visible from many places is a great one. However, I side with those who raise their eyebrows over this attraction. We watched from the...More

We found a good spot to watch the show but had to wait for over an hour for it to start. After 10 minutes we left despite our long wait - it was a huge disappointment. It was not funny, entertaining or educational. Don't waste...More

I knew before going that it was a tribute to a film maker - but even knowing that it was hard to follow in places. Price is right (free) and it is put on after the Cirque show, so you can catch both. It is...More

Other reviewers have implied that the content is confusing or strange. This might be the case if you do not watch from the beginning. This presentation is a tribute to Norman McLaren, an animation pioneer, and cleverly interprets and presents excerpts from his work. I...More

After about 5 minutes of strange somewhat confusing images we decided to go get crepes...good thing we didn't pay the 5 bucks for better seats...

We were really looking forward to this, and while I appreciate the talent behind putting this together and displaying it we were bored silly pretty quickly. Wish we'd chosen the circ de soleil instead.

What a wonderful multi-image show this is. We had never seen anything like it. Arrive 20 minutes before showtime to get a good seat--earlier during weekends. Lasts about 45 minutes. Don't miss it--kids will love it, too.
