“Fun at The Puzzling Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

As a family we had a enjoyable visit to the puzzling place in Keswick.The puzzles and illusions are very good and great for kids and adults alike. The best bit is the Ames Room with a sloping floor which makes one person very small and the other person very tall standing in opposite corners. There is a gift shop to visit at the end where you can buy puzzles and tricks.This attraction is worth a visit.

Just as the title says. Less than £12 gets you a hour or more of entertainment for the whole family. Really good fun. family

“Good value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

The Puzzling Place was a really fun experience and at times rather baffling! It took around 40 minutes for 2 adults to look at everything in depth so at £3.75 is reasonably priced. Would be fun for children but some things may be a bit tricky for them to work out/see.

Kids (and adults) loved it. Great value for money (family ticket @ £11.70) kept kids entertained for 1 1/2 hours.

“Great attraction for a wet day.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

We took my 2 boys aged 12 & 9 & they loved it. It was quiet when we got there at around 10.30 but by 11 it was full of families having a good giggle at each other. Reasonably priced & well worth a visit.
