My girlfriend got me this set for my birthday, first the artwork on the box is outstanding, and the price to part is on point. This set is a lot bigger than it looks, the colors are fantastic and the techniques used were pretty good. The bus is also a lot sturdier than I thought, nothing feels like it's gonna fall off. The minifigs are top notch and the haunted toilet is a great touch as it can shoot out at you. I would definitely recommend to you this set also with the app it's a fun build!

Please be aware the Hidden Side Legos may not be compatible with your mobile device, IPad or chrome book. This was a bit disappointing for our child to not be able to fully interact with two sets he received for his birthday. We have since been able to correct that and he just loves them.

Recommendation: meh 4.5 / 5

We like how this allows kids to keep one hand in both the physical and digital worlds. LEGO building is still part of the play experience, but the app enhances and extends the play.

Recommendation: meh 90 / 100 by Tom

This was my second Hidden Side set, but the first one that I actually paid for. In the end, I am quite pleased with the purchase. The set was a great value, even at full price. While I will modify the build a little to suit my needs more, I think that kids will enjoy playing with it as is. Additionally, you get a nice selection of Minifigures, and the added bonus of an augmented reality game. The Paranormal Intercept Bus 3000 is a worthwhile purchase, and I recommend it.

Recommendation: yes by Adam White

This is probably one of the most anticipated of the Hidden Side sets and after building it, I love it even more. The various nods to other LEGO themes is great fun and something I adore seeing in LEGO sets. The build is engaging and not overly repetitive despite the similar sections it features.

Recommendation: yes by CapnRex101

Hidden Side focuses upon two teenage heroes so constructing their paranormal investigation vehicle around a traditional school bus seems perfectly suitable and 70423 Paranormal Intercept Bus 3000 is outstanding. This model looks fantastic on display and incorporates numerous enjoyable functions for play which are further augmented when combined with the innovative Hidden Side app.

Recommendation: yes by Tim Johnson

After building the Paranormal Intercept Bus 3000, I am confident in saying that it is one of the most creatively interesting sets of the Hidden Side line. The unusual choice of subject matter helps it to stand out from previous LEGO sets, though at the same time it could easily be modified to fit into a post-apocalyptic or City layout.
