When the night comes, everybody was excited because the entire place was lit up with many lights and you will truly experience the fairy castle you can never imagine. And It was the best scene I've ever seen in my life especially when I tried the Wheel of Fate which was riding the ferris wheel. And if you where at the top it was really amazing and it was awesome because you can see the entire place full of lights. I cannot explained what I feel when I'm on the top looking at the place and you never feel feared or scared because what you can only see was a bright world.
