The ushers on the door were very welcoming and helpful. The show was enthralling and the audience reaction enhanced the experience. The quality of the staging was amazing, as was the acting, singing and puppetry.

We arrived at 6.30pm and got some drinks before the show. We then took our seats and waited for the show to begin. It started on time at 7.30 but there was a technical hitch and they stopped the show to fix the problem. We waited about half an hour and it started again, and we wasn’t disappointed! Just WOW!! Absolutely amazing, the characters, props, music I would say it’s even better then the film- and the film is one of my Disney favourites growing up as a child. I will definitely be coming again and bringing my children along this time too!

I brought tickets for this show for my fiancé and we were blown away. The elephant right from the start was a show stopper. The whole script, costume/ props, choreography, singing and acting performance was out of this world and we can gladly say, it has been the best show yet.

I was excited to see Lion King, sadly the experience was that bad myself and guest left during the interval. The theatre was hot, G stalls where uncomfortable with not much leg room and after enduring a lengthy journey to get to the theater the performance was lack luster and flat. Definitely not worth the expense at all...
