    Had a blast here especially at the Silent Disco and in the ball pit at the end. Frustrated with the queue though, we didn't get in until an hour after it was meant to start.

    A more organised queue: I heard that in 2017, everyone got tickets checked and wristbands handed out while waiting in the queue, so that when the ball opened the queue was extremely quick. That didn't happen this year for some reason.
