The opening was shown on television. On opening there was only 6000 tickets, but a lot of people bought fake tickets; according to some estimates, the attendance was over 28,000, far more than the Park can accommodate.

So how was the opening attraction was a queue and sometimes not be seen for what you are. I tried to go everywhere, since you had the chance. Often had to remove their shoes in order not to lose it.
