On a day out in York, this was one of two venues we intended to visit. This was the biggest disappointment I've had in ages.
The glass covered 'dig' was poorly lit and therefore it was hard to distinguish any features plus the demonstrator was telling people it wasn't authentic.
The ride was the best part but still fairly poor. Okay, there was the odd smell here and there, but it really didn't add to the atmosphere.
When we got off the ride, we couldn't move for a party of schoolkids, which couldn't be helped but there was not enough space to comfortably move and see everything, so we ended up missing most of the exhibits at that end. It was over before we knew it and it was very disappointing especially that we paid so much. I'm glad we didnt have to queue for it!
