  • You need to reserve 1.5 h for visit there. We booked this visit online. There was either in Polish or English. A little funny, more for children.

  • Lovely place! One may say that the experience is created for kids, but my wife and I were really happy with what we got for a 29 zł ticket! The "show" was prepared in a funny, engaging way so it was fun to be there!
  • We loved this experience. The show is great and you end up baking cookies! Really fun for families, kids, and couples.
