“Super for kids of all ages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Have been here a few times as a teacher with school kids. It is a brilliant, informative, interactive experience where you could easily spend a whole day and still not have seen everything. Best suited to about aged 8 upwards though have a section for younger children. Adults will also learn a lot! A must for a day out in Belfast.

“food disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

The whole W5 experience needs refreshed- as a family we have been here a few times and the children now find it boring. the food is far too limited and seriously overpriced. Santas queues too long with little to entertain the children who had to wait in a shortish queue for an hour
