Mysterious symbols at every turn, rotating rooms with multiple doors, like going down Alice's rabbit hole or into a strange dream. Suitable for most children, but not buggy-friendly, and could be a... More

There was enough interest to keep both the elderly and youngsters entertained and the grand children are already looking forward to revisiting next half term.

We live locally so this is our absolute favourite go-to destination if we have visitors. It is totally unique and full of surprises both above and under ground. It is an unscripted walk-through with a dungeons and dragons/ Hobbit type feel so adults are every bit as engaged as kids. Our visit this weekend seemed to be full of very... More

You won't know what its all about unless you go and if you go you'll know what a great day out it was. Like nothing else you have ever been to . A sensuous delight for all ages that will have you all smiling in wonder. Great fun.

We thoroughly enjoyed the experience, the kids loved the adventure element! Although for very small children the tunnel was a little scary but not enough to not attempt them. Would definitely recommend a visit.

Me and husband love this place and enjoy a good day out exploring. However we have taken our 3 year old twice and she was very frightened both times and cried most of the way round. Great for older children though. I would say though try go mid week when kids are at school as its so much better when... More
