This is a museum and not for this seeking thrills. Had small children who had no clue about what was happening except for the laser dance room and the music stairs.

We enjoyed a wander thru. Quite educational and interesting. Large area of displays and curios and takes longer than we thought. Something for everyone. Good value in the Heart of Surfers Paradise.

The exhibitions are actually not too bad. For small children, they are mostly interested in the figures rather than words hence more exhibits would be even better as we completed the exhibition in about 30 mins. Price is expensive though for the entire family.

Occasionally Groupon has very good deals on this. I purchased it through Groupon the last time and it was definitely worth it .

Yes, we have an elevator especially for wheelchair access, and the attraction is flat all the way through. Our friendly staff will take you to the elevator and into the show.
