Pharaoh’s Lost Kingdom' is the ultimate tourist trap. Everything is extremely expensive and you do not get much for your money. I went there once, because I had relatives visiting with their kids and they wanted to go. It is a waste of time and a watse of money.
Unique Suggestions: Go on a sunny day and just walk around first before you buy any tickets. Get an idea of what is offered, and then make up your mind if you want to spend your time or your money there.
Fun Alternatives: Go across the street to the musuem. It has 3 floors and a lot of history and information on the local area. Kids will enjoy it cause it usually has something just for them. It is free, but they encorrage a donation. No more than $5 for everyone in your group.
Education vs. FUN! FUN! FUN! Aaaah! It's an amusement park! The ultimate tourist trap (besides those cheesy roadside banners that say something like: Four miles to the Biggest Ball of Rubberbands in the World!) Watch out for this one, and you can't miss it since it greddily rubs up against the freeway, leaving the poor nearby museum to fend for itself in the wake of entertainment hungry tourists. Pharoah's Lost Kingdom is et another addition to the ever growing network of forget the local culture and natural beauty and let me fulfill all of your dreams in one package while sucking vast quantities of cash from your pockets parks--also known as amusement parks for short. Sure it has miniture golf, an arcade, a small assortment of second-hand rides,and even a three-story water slide. This is all well and good for nearby residents, but the hardened traveler would fare better by doing something they will remember--like indulging in the symphonies and theater arts.
