Went with my mum brother his girlf and my 9 year old son. Quite possibly the most random place I've ever been. My brother thought it was complete rubbish!! For me it's been there, was sort of alright but I wo go back

have toyed with the idea of going in on several occasions when in london but entrance fee put us off..finally got convinced to do it and although it was very interesting was certainly not worth £26.50 im sure if they reduced the admission they would get more people through the door..place was not very busy at all..

I went with my adult son for a day out, and deliberately picked something we could get vouchers for and do on the cheap. So courtesy of a well know supermarket we got tickets, which arrived within a week, and we spent a happy few hours at the attraction. We had specifically chosen a date well out of any school...

Santana Roadhouse is in Kempton Park Gauteng - it is my favourite roadhouse because they make the most delicious hamburgers and their chips is to die for people in Kempton Park and surrounding must go there if they enjoy a good burger and chips

this attraction is not cheap and unless you are using vouchers i think the price is to high. Plenty of things to see and amuse the kids but try to avoid busy times as it can be rather packed inside.

A wonderful experience, for all the family. Lots of things there to keep your kids entertained. Has a gift shop, even a laser zone but that is under the stairs in the gift shop. Friendly staff, prepare to bring glass domes of your kids back home.

Some weird and wonderful artefacts. Unusual drawings and paintings made out of things you would never imagine. Some very boring stuff like the mirror maze. OK if you have couple of hours to pass by. Very cramped place. Strange finish. Led into the photo gallery and then a road block with people as you can only go down by ONE... More

went to ripleys last week in half term with two children aged 10 and 6 and we would defiantly go again. Loved how they had put so much into it and the staff are all knowledgeable and although lots of people it wasn't too busy for us not to enjoy as its on different levels. The mirror maze was good...

As Londoners we had a friend visit from up North so took a day trip to Ripley's. We got BOGOF with a Travel card and so I only paid the cost of one adult and one child. Although included in this cost was the 'Mirror Maze' and 'Laser race' which we didn't really want to go to but did as... More

We went to this museum as a group of 4 friends, as we needed to make some time. We think that the museum is good, but not worth the ticket price which can be spent in some greater places. The mirror room is small, but still pretty fun. The tunnel and laser room are also great. I guess those rooms... More
