Booked online. Only issue is that you still have to print out the tickets (e-ticket not accepted). Once hotel printed out the tickets, thanks missed all the long queues and walked straight in. Great! Been before but still as good as my memory isn't great felt everything was new to me again. Well worth the admission.
