Lonely Planet review for Holland Experience
Situated next to the Rembrandthuis, this multimedia hype-fest tries to cram all of this little land's big attractions into an overpriced mishmash of sights and sounds. The audience dons 3-D glasses and sits on a rotating platform that lurches along with a plotless half-hour film from tulips to windmills to threatened dykes. Oh dear.
The film has no narration or explanation, just a theme from Swan Lake which gets played ad nauseam. At one point a fish wags its tongue at the audience. Then an on-screen dyke crumbles, the room temperature plummets, and a Sony-augmented thunderstorm rages. As film-making it leaves a lot to be desired but we will say this: the six-year-olds in the audience howled with laughter over the sight gags (although even they fell silent after a while). Our advice: get high first.
