My family (2 adults, 2 young boys) had been in 2010 and thought it was excellent. Since then, it seems, nothing has been spent on the attraction. Around half of the interactive exhibits no longer interacted, the visuals of anything audiovisual had faded, and the special effects in the wormhole were non-existent. What a let down. I felt very sorry... More

Do not waste your money! Visited with children aged 5, 10 and 14. This did not appeal to any of them. It's all very tired and in dire need of an update. Their was also a very dubious smell. Couldn't wait to leave. The planetarium was the most disappointing. Just a rubbish cinema to be honest. The whole experience was... More

Went on the ferry as a combined ticket and was genuinely surprised. We played on the ride and saw the astronaut show, my kids made dr who screwdrivers that lit up and then charged around the place attacking all the dr who monsters, though the cinema upstairs was pretty boring and looked like home movies. We enjoyed the day and... More

The weather was lousy, so looked for an indoor attraction, never been before but was quite surprised, with three kids in tow it ticked a few boxes. Ok so some of the displays were not working, but the kids moved on and we played a quiz show. The simulator was ok and we did it twice and the space show... More

We took this as part of a ferry trip. Only good thing to say is that it is located adjacent to the ferry terminal. You begin by watching some very very old tv's mounted flat on a central table in a small room showing a blurry ancient cartoon. You have to queue to get in here and what you see... More

From the opening supposed journey into space this experience was filled with disappointment. We all looked down on a bunch of blurry old tellys for 5 minutes (not a flat panel in sight) then wandered aimlessly round an bunch of broken interactive exhibits. It looked like somebody had knocked the whole thing up in their shed. The only thing which... More

We visited Liverpool on a windy Sunday. paid £5 to park at the Pier Head. We made our way to the ferry terminal, we intended to visit the Spaceport attraction with a combined Mersey ferry journey. We used the toilet facilities , which were very busy. Upon joining the busy queue, a family were deciding whether or not to catch... More

Took my kids (8 & 6) got combined ticket with ferry. This made value ok. Good points: Planetarium film was great and entertaining (although about astronauts not planets); flight simulator good. Very friendly and helpful staff. Ok for about 90 min visit. Bad points: too many things not working. Upstairs exhibition is total waste of space.

On entering found many interactive displays not working.. Old 'feel' to the technology used..dirty screens..parts missing etc. .Dr Who display was cheap and tired using cardboard cutouts and... More
