The O2 (formerly the Millennium Dome)
Date: 28/06/00, updated on 28/06/00 (4 review reads)
Advantages: After £8000 you have to see it
Disadvantages: Rip off and really rather uninspiring
When I saw the dome from outside I thought it looked wonderful but as soon as you get inside it becomes all grey and dirty looking. Although the zones look colourful there is a ceiling of grey wherever you go which is offputting. Not a very inspiring thing to have with you all day, but it does make the outside look nicer!
Also I found all the Zones to be very disorganised with some zones having no clear 'entrance' leaving you to wander round aimlessly. Something as simple as lines on the ground to mark entrances would be good.
It all comes across as a very pathetic attempt at catering for people with limited intelligence and a lack (in the greater part) of sophistication.
Many of the things in the zones seem to only be catered to children. There was little I found exciting or entralling. The Blackadder and Millennium shows were honetsly the best parts of the day. Oh and my companions.
I think queueing for about 1hr 45min (feb 29) didn't help much either!
