Even on a cold wet December day it was fun. Quite a lot is underground in caves and tunnels, so good for all weathers. Think we were the only ones there without kids - but why should they get all the good stuff??

Back for another visit.. We loved it so much, we went back... But we had to find SANTA. We found him... Plus the other things we didn't find the last time. Still didn't find everything!!! Loved it.... So did my little family. The only negative ... The drinks that were served were not nice.

Fabulous, but I've never seen it so busy. Lovely atmosphere despite all the people and the foul weather! this time I was with two 12 year olds who loved it and we all had a lot of fun. I've been with smaller kids who enjoyed it on a whole different level. it is intriguing! Pizza in the restaurant is fantastic!

I am so glad I've read some reviews before we arrived as I wouldn't have been as prepared (especially my 6 year old who isn't keen on getting wet) We were entertained for 2.5 hours and had some food at the cafe after (which was ok) Overall very pleased.

Made my first visit to the Forbidden Corner this weekend with my friend and her two children (6 and 4). It was truly magical. It's hard to review without giving away too many of the secrets to those that haven't been yet, there really were surprises round every corner. We chose to go as we were looking for somewhere different... More

We spent a brilliant day here with my sister (aunty Amy) and the wife and kids aged 8, 6 and 2. Non of us knew what to expect and that made it all the more amazing. It is quite scary at points and the adults could barely believe the lengths the owner of this place has gone to to make... More

I last visited the FB more than 15 years ago, so its to was wonderful to go back. This attraction is made for everyone. There are so many different aspects of the place and what you can gain.

The venue and the location is stunning and the kids had a fabulous time. Weird and wacky and well worth the drive. However, the till staff on entry were less than welcoming which was a real shame as were the cafe staff who seemed more interested in each other than their clientele ! They are missing a real trick ,... More
