Do we have to print our ticket or can we present it in digital format?gael2022-06-15T15:32:14+02:00
We believe that the tour presents a very low risk of epileptic seizures. This is because the lighting effects do not involve high-frequency stroboscopic effects. However, this depends on individual photosensitivity and we cannot guarantee zero risk. The tour is therefore not recommended for people with epilepsy.
