Good place, but the bathrooms have room for improvement. The tilted room is by far the best one as you have no clue if the room is actually tilted or not. It truly is an illusion. The wall of heads is also great. This place is lots of fun and I would definitely recommend this to others.

If you have some time in Wanaka I would definitely recommend this place.
