Review

I was lured to Fisherman's Wharf Macau by one of the most cleverly constructed theme park websites I've seen to date. When I arrived on scene, I was suprised that there were actually more humans on the website than in the place itself, which was deserted apart from the two employees standing in front of the Military Camp: this US-Arabia-clash-themed paintball zone starring Osama Bin Laden, Saddam Hussein and Jesus Christ is one of the most politically incorrect and comically tasteless installments I've ever come across.

As for the other 'attractions' as camel carousel and magic carpet ride, I had to pay the attendants to switch it on. The DisneySea inspired volcano used to house a roller coaster that's been closed permanently.

Luckily, you don't pay to enter Fisherman's Wharf. Congratulations to the owners for setting up an ingenious website representing a project with such an overall incoherence that it still causes me sleepless nights. This place is like one of the classic B-movies of the 50s: it's so bad that you've got to love it!
