Enjoyed a good few hours here but it could be so much better. You are initially shut into a dark room with no explanation of what is going on. It's hot and children got easily bored and fed up waiting. We eventually got to move into another room which was busy and confusing with no member of staff explaining what... More

What a disappointment this trip was! Having looked forward to visiting and making our own rock me and my family were far from happy with the way things went. To start we paid our entry fee and then what seemed like an eternity waiting in the smallest room, crammed in like sardines, with nothing to do or enlighten us as... More

We went here when on holiday, would recommend getting there for when it opens as can get busy, £2 for Kids and £2.50 for adults to get in and £1 to roll rock and £1 to make a chocolate lolly, you get samples to eat on the way around, think the dvd when you first go in could do with... More

Tour round the factory is ok interesting see how the rock is made and how they add letters other than that it tends to get a bit boring and not much else to do, has a play area but its not up to much and not cheap.
