Well, where exactly do i start....
We arrived on a lovely wet day in cornwall, my two young boys looking forward to seeing the fishies because of the leaflet we had picked up around and about at other attractions in the vicinity. On the leaflet it states "The Ultimate Undersea Family DAY Out", quite frankly this is the worst case of mis-selling i have ever experienced. We decided to have a bit of lunch when we arrived, in anticipation of the attraction itself. We had two sausage rolls and drink cartons for the kids, a ham salad wrap and bottle of 7-Up for the wife and a tuna mayo baguette and coffee for myself which set us back a mouth-watering £24.00!! When the food arrived, it was dis-belief because the whole lot would have set you back under a tenner round the corner!!
After that fantastic start to our ultimate experience we decided to bite the bullit and go in, we didnt have to queue for long, (which became clear why!!) "two adults, one child" i said as my youngest is under three he qualifies free (Thank God). "£27.00 please" said the young lady behind the bulging till, "I'm sorry, only two adults, one child" i replied, to which the responce was "yes that will be £27.00 please". Well okay i thought as we are on holiday......22 and a half minutes later we were stood in the shop next to the bloody cafe again!!!
To be absoultly honest i was in shock and immediatly asked my wife if we had missed anything or taken a wrong turn somewhere. When the realisation actually hit me i needed to sit down as i had just realised that i had wasted £51.00. The actual aquarium was fine but there was hardly anything there. We, as a family have been to quite a few aquariums up and down the country, Weston-Super-Mare, Loch Lomand, Bristol (which again was disapointing which is quite funny as the is also part of the blue reef franchise) to name but a few, but this really capped them all.
In whole a really expensive waste of time with not very good overpriced food, also please dont get the guide book which you are offered after you feel like you have been robbed, because you really dont need it!!! Not a very good hour out of our day!!!
