“Not very bit but we had fun for an hour”
Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

Good fun, especially for the kids.
I recommend that you don't eat much before going in as one of the rooms makes you feel quite dizzy and sick, but it's great fun!

“something different”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

A good place to pass an hour on a very cold day , we live locally but thought it would be something interesting for our 2 grandaughters age 5&7, somethings a bit advanced for them but not bad value for money,the usual shop on the way out to spend a bit more money.

“Quick but fun”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Small experience but a fun one. Definitely best if you've got someone with you as many of the illusions required a helper. Plenty of food for thought during the visit and we've got some excellent photos.

“Something A Bit Different to the Usual Attractions”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

We visited The Puzzling Place after a relative recommended it and really enjoyed it with our two children aged 11 and 8. The admission price was reasonable and you could easily spend a good hour in there. It was quite busy with it being a Bank Holiday but this didn't prove too be too much of a problem. The exhibits were very good, yes some did look in need of a bit of an overhaul, but with so much daily wear and tear that's to be expected. Altogether it was really good and something totally different to the average attraction that it's bound to satisfy the most active of children with all the hands on exhibits. There are no public toilets on site but these can be found within 5 minutes of the attraction.
