Kids really enjoyed this, well worth booking for a rainy day. The website was correct, it gets really busy when it rains, we saw numerous families being turned away that hadn't pre-booked.

A great escape into a world of piracy, myths and legends... Our two girls aged 13 and 8 were engrossed from the moment we entered... The Pirates made sure everyone was having a great time. Just so different from the other attractions and great value for money.

We went with our 7yr old & 4 yr old. Need to book as people were being turned away! Not only was the theatrical experience extremely well delivered and highly entertaining, there was a word quest as you went along and lots of great facts were given in a fun and child friendly way. Felt like a Brilliant cross between... More

Thank you for visiting and really glad to hear that you enjoyed the pirating experience. We also offer a 10% discount on tickets if you book in advance - and you can secure a tour time at the same time too.

We were with children aged 3, 5 and 2 older children around 9. So three 5 and under. It was so boring. 3 pirates who just talked and talked and... More

We went round this attraction for a laugh as it is so obviously aimed at kids. We loved it actually from the first guide in his pirate outfit who took our money and issued me and a little girl who was there with her parents a pirate map before ushering us into a room containing a video display that was...
