About
Whatever the weather DangerPoint has something for everyone. We are an independent charity based in Talacre, North Wales. Open local School holidays, please telephone and check before travelling just in case we are fully booked. Our award winning interactive centre is designed like a film set where you can explore familiar settings like the home, beach, countryside, playground and farm, seeking out the dangers & answering detective questions to complete the Danger Detective Quest. With free parking and low entrance fees, this is a great family activity which makes learning about safety FUN! You can also talk to our friendly alien K-os, who comes to life on screens around the centre. Fully interactive, visitors can speak to him as they complete the Danger Detective Quest. During the Summer holidays we also have a Treasure Hunt and a Craft room ready for artists to paint various pottery or make crafts or Sand art. Prices in the Craftroom start from as little as £2.

Thank you so much for your review Clare. So pleased your daughter loved the centre and chatting to K-os, you're more than welcome to come back again. We do try to keep prices as low as possible so that as many children can benefit as possible. Dangerpoint is a registered charity and any proceeds from opening to families in school holidays go towards providing education for more children in term time. So by visiting us, you are helping your own child and others too, thank you so much for your support :)

Great find
Aug 2019 • Family
Great little centre, we visited on our last day of holiday in Wales with our 7 year old and newborn. She loves educational activity centres and spends a lot of time at Eureka in Halifax so to find this was great and she thoroughly enjoyed it. The activity booklet to go with it really makes the information on danger such a fun way for children to take it all in. We also did a trail today finding gems in each area too and was given a treat at the end for completing the trail. Cheap and cheerful, Definitely recommend

Attended 4 Adults and two children 5 & 7 £26 total. Staff were extremely helpful, polite and friendly. Workbook for the children was clear and easy to follow. Exhibits were amazing, interactive and interesting. Would advise anyone to go. We were there for two hours but could have stayed longer not a problem .

Hidden treat
Oct 2018 • Family
Very last minute trip to the centre with our children, website did warn that they take school bookings and was currently showing as full for our day however we rang and they told us to visit in the afternoon instead as the school would be finished by then. Really great place for pointing out all the things you constantly warn your children about but they never seem to listen too. Covers everything from road safety, online safety, bullying and household dangers an so much more. Very interactive and has tasks and challenges throughout to keep the kids involved. We had children ages 12,8 and 20months. We spent 4 hours here. Worth a visit and staff were attentive and helpful. Very good price too.

very disappointed that web site DOES NOT make clear only open in school holidays
Sep 2018 • Family
went to visit this in term time only to be told not open to general public, one very upset 9 year old on a wet Welsh day. This is only shown in a very small one line on web site, needs to be clearer. Lady on reception did suggest one other possible place but not suitable for what we wanted. Had travelled some distance to visit this venue.

Hi, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. It is unfortunate you were unable to take part in our family day activities however, we have been fully booked with schools throughout the past term therefore are unable to take any public in during this time. As a charity, we would always welcome visitors to the centre where we're able to accommodate them and I do hope you are able to visit us again soon during our local school holidays. Many thanks The DangerPoint Team

Delighted to be able to return to Dangerpoint now my granddaughter, aged 8yrs, is able to fully take part in the interactive activities. She remembered K-os from 3yrs ago! Good fun, informative, excellent value and fabulous staff. A big “thank you” to Mark for keeping us on the right track. Will definitely return next half term to try out the craft facilities.

My family and I were staying at the nearby caravan park and I must admit when I suggested visiting here no one was very keen. However, we had a brilliant few hours, the staff were wonderful with lots of interactive fun to be had around the centre.

Kids loved it and learnt a lot
Aug 2018 • Family
What a fantastic place.

We were staying at the Talacre Beach campsite and wanted something inside for the kids. We found Danger Point and we were really impressed.

Free parking just to the left of the centre and the staff that greeted us were incredibly cheery and friendly, genuinely though not OTT.

The premise of the centre is to teach kids about safety in all aspects of life, rules of the roads, rules of the railway, water safety, green cross code etc. This is all done through interactive games, puzzles and video clips as you pass through various zones throughout the attraction.

My 6 year old was given a workbook to complete, questions about each zone. There was also a treasure hunt with different coloured jewels that my 3 yr old could do. A really nice touch was that if they found all the jewels they received a free gift at the end.

The centre is modern, clean and well maintained. The zones are really good and it made me feel good as a parent, helping my children learn really valuable life lessons as well as doing lots of independent writing and reading.

They even have a craft area where my daughter painted a pottery mermaid, which the staff made a real fuss over, my daughter was really proud of it.

If you're staying at Talacre, this is definitely a must do for kids of early primary age. We paid £20 for 3 adults and 1 child, my 3 Yr old was free.
