Must do

This place is insane, so much to see and do for all ages. Our kids range from 16 to 1 and they were all amused for the whole time we spent there. The Vortex was my favourite not for the faint hearted though. Breathtaking views from the observatory. All round a great attraction

Really enjoyable experience was a bit busy when we went which made it difficult to really enjoy the experience, particularly because at the time there were lots of kids running around.

Loved it all made us laugh a lot. The head on the table was good and the room where I could look taller than my son and hubby was great. The revolving tunnel freaked my son and hubby out much to my amusement for me it was the hall of mirrors

Good fun for all ages.

It was very interesting and lots of interactive things for young and old to experience and enjoy. My children are age 4 and 7, they both enjoyed their visit both were engaged throughout. At times there was spacing issues, if at all on edge re Covid distancing this might not be for you as there was no social distancing.

Disappointing
Rosa_R

We were very disappointed with our experience, we chose the 7:30pm slot and were told we would have plenty of time to see everything, however it was so overcrowded we were unable to get round everything before it closed at 9pm. The exhibits themselves were interesting but we felt that due to people queuing and crowding each room, it was difficult to enjoy them.

Fantastic and well organized attraction

Fantastic day out. Was worried it wouldn’t be suitable for our 2yr old but he loved it. They have managed the covid situation brilliantly and it was very well organized. We never felt like there were too many people and there were plenty of wipes and sanitizer. Would highly recommend.

Not as good as we thought

The maze and the bridge were the only two good attractions the rest was pretty boring ! The roof top view was nice but the first 3 floors (of 6) were pretty dull
