  • we discovered Nausicaa today as a family. sublime. Very clean, very well designed arrow course. Free instructions for placing coats and bags. Accessible to people with reduced mobility. My 8- and 5-year-old daughters took it in their eyes, just like us. They only talk about sharks, manta rays and jellyfish. Allow at least 3 hours to do everything right.
