Good for children
Mar 2020 • Couples
Was included in part of our ticket for the wider dockyards so popped in to take a look.
Is aimed at children, andvif not part of the all inclusive ticket would probably be expensive in it's own right.
Nonetheless sill keep kids happy with interactive activities. However when we went at the end of the day it was clear some of the systems were "overloaded" as many electronic interactive things needed someone to press ctrl_alt_delete on to reset them. It wasnt that busy, and whilst spacious, could do with more to keep everyone entertained and simultaneously educated.

Variety of things to do
Feb 2020 • Family
A nice family afternoon, plenty to see and do and fully accessible with a lift etc... my son enjoyed it and the queues moved quickly. Various things to do for all ages and all indoors for those rainy days.

Plenty for children of all ages

Went here with boy 13 & girl 9, both found lots to do and get very "hands on" with equipment. Plenty of bangs and competitive items where appropriate

Brilliant for families of all ages, the annual pass is worth it as so much to do there for adults and children

Waste of money
Mar 2019 • Family
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 son is now 13 and it was a real disappointment. The aircraft simulator, the helicopter simulator were both out of action, the interactive gun game also, the queue for the climbing frame long and several interactive games on the top level were also broken. These are the sort of experiences older children like. We were in and out in 30 minutes, a very expensive 30 minutes

Disappointing
Feb 2019 • Family
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!

Disappointing
Aug 2018 • Family
Booked to break up day for our active kids (10 and 8). Ninja course was good
. Climbing wall also good however you had limited time to use it. Staff were helpful. Many things not working which my son found frustrating - on balance a disappointing visit.

What a Let Down
Aug 2018 • Family
There were good bits here and the two young grandchildren, 8 & 10, enjoyed the climbing wall and obstacle course. However how on Earth can the website still be raving about the simulator ride which is permanently closed and has been for months?

Why is the helicopter simulator unsupervised so children can simply refuse to move when their turn is over?

Why was the much promoted movie experience not operating?

To be honest I’m pretty angry. It is not cheap.

Kids fun.
Jul 2018 • Family
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 but take your cash as it is £17 for a single attraction entrance fee.
