We had a combi ticket for the Tower, ballroom, Jungle Jims and Circus. I would recommend getting there early, as we didn't have time to do everything. Also I would find somewhere to park where you can stay all day or pay when you get back as we thought 4 hours would be plenty and it wasn't (for us anyway)... More

Purchased a combi ticket x 7 for my daughters birthday. This gave us access to jungle jims, the circus and the tower ballroom. Unfortunately the circus was not on.....it's was literally the only day it wasn't on as they cancelled it to get ready for the Christmas production. The tower ballroom was closed for a private function and we were... More

Must admit to being pleasantly surprised. Thought it was overpriced when we bought tickets, but good value really. Enjoyed the 4D experience, and have great views from the top of the tower. The glass floor is an experience!

Visit the tower on a clear day. There are amazing views and the glass floor at the top of the tower is just awesome, gives you a few jitters but totally worth it! From the level where the glass floor is, there are stairs which take you higher up, which is again great. But there is no wheelchair access here... More
