As I live in Portsmouth I have been coming here with my grandson since he was a small boy. We get a single ticket just for action stations which cost £34. If you have small children under 5 it is quite good but my grand...More

We're in here at the moment and it is rather disappointing. Lots of things out of order and slow queues for the things that are working. My 8 year old is very underwhelmed!

A great place for kids to burn off their energy. The climbing walls, punch lights and ninja challenge are all free. The laser game is £6 a shot and the motor boats £10 per go for up to 5 passengers. Other areas are mostly static...More

Very disappointing so-called action stations as many of the exhibits/interactive items were either broken or roped off or damaged. We paid quite a large sum for this. Why do the managers not notice these inoperable parts or, if there are so many, why do they...More

This was definitely one of the best attractions we visited during our trip to the historic dockyard! Everyone in our group (ages 8-40) found something fun to do during our visit to action stations. Climbing tower, rotating climbing wall, simulators and the ninja force assault...More
