  • VR always makes me feel wonky, but I did the reverse bungy and enjoyed it. Great views, and fun stuff which will hold the family's interest for an hour or two. Restaurants on level 59 were too pricey for us, but there are many more reasonable options on level 1 or on the streets between here and the station.
