Recently I took some of my relatives to the IMAX Omni-Theatre to watch the documentary. My previous experiences with the Theatre was very much wonderful. To our expectations, it was a disappointing experience. The sound effect was not as good as previously shown and the screen view was also not expected as before. I do not recommend this attraction unless there is a serious improvement in the show.

If you are new to an IMAX globe-type experience, you may like it. But if you have been to one already, you can safely skip this. The show we went to was titled 'Going back to moon' - the script was poorly written, the show was not well picturized, lots of artificiality, too boring that I slept in the middle.

Requested to watch one show but was sold a ticket for another. My mistake for not checking the ticket when bought but was rushing for the Tesla Coil show at the Science Centre.

The movies were not as spellbounding as before. Lots of CGIs which make it look like a morning cartoon TV programme. I remembered when I was younger, the Omni theatre showed a movie on outer space, black holes, quarks...now that would amaze anyone - adult or kids! I would suggest to bring that back!

The Omni-Theatre is an unique experience as it provides really wide screen (not just left and right, but also above your head) to provide images to your peripheral visions. So, it does feel that you are almost there in the movie, similar concept to IMAX.

We watched the movie about the Dinosaurs, quite interesting and educational. However, would prefer the movie to last a little longer.

Best seating for Omni-Theatre: middle top part of the hall, in the section with lesser seat count.
Purchasing Omni-Theatre and KidStop as a package saves $2 pp. Go during off-peak period where are savings to the admission charges. Off-peak is weekdays outside school holidays.
