Everyone loved Alice in Wonderland as children, teens and possibly even adults, whether it was the books or the countless films (some worse than others), they were all mostly just brilliant.
Tim Burtons new imagination of this has recently made me remember how much I loved this as a child, and has opened up Alice in Wonderland to a whole new generation.
We saw the journey of Alice stumble upon a new land and meet new friends and new foes. Alice in Wonderland makes all of us feel like children again as we see her adventure unwind before our very eyes.
Now you can try it out for yourself and experience the magic of being in Wonderland with all the creepy and freaky characters there. As Tokyo York has embraced the spirit of Alice and the insanity of Wonderland I feel it’s only fair to give you a little bit of information about Alice and Wonderland.
