Hi, sorry no. It is a pre-arranged tour and you are getting a show all wrapped into one. You are given some free time to wander around during the tour. I would recommend and if you like a few scares, even better :)

I would say probably not, the jump scares might upset them and they may not pay attention to the speaking parts which were really good and would be a shame for a small kid to ruin it for the other guests.
