Two adults visiting family and decided to pop in. Its true we would have been through in 20 mins had we not engaged in conversation with Craig. His enthusiasm and knowledge was great and it turned an average visit into a very informative and interesting one. Good job Craig - thanks for taking time to enhance our experience.

Having read the generally poor reviews we weren't expecting much, but as it was a chilly February half term and we had an afternoon to fill, we thought we'd try it. Having booked online the day before it was only £20 for 2 adults and 1 child, so not too bad compared to other attractions. The lady on the ticket... More

Arrived outside and the signage looked good. My wife, I and 12 year old daughter, £26 to get in. Very hard sell on... More

First of all this place is way too overpriced. It costs £9.50 for adults and £7.50 for children. The experience lasts around 20 minutes if you don't take part in any activities. It's run down and in desperate need of renovation. The activities happen throughout the day in hourly intervals. This is basically the implored method of justifying the high... More

Live locally and only been once. Seems to cost the same as the bigger ones but didn't take long to go around, though it has been a couple of years

Disappointed that this was so overpriced at £9.95 each and it was tired inside. Could of done with a good clean, interesting to go under the see through chamber but other than that pretty boring. Takes you about ten mins to walk through out into a gift shop again overpriced.
