Very well navigated especially with covid rules. A lot more to see than expected. Had the choice of not going through the tunnel if didnt want to which is handy.

Good but pricey

Kids had a brilliant time and loved the interactive mat, chasing the fish and cars. A day out for all ages. My only suggestion would be review the entry price, it's rather steep for what it is for example you can get into Blair Drummond Safari park for cheaper, and you will spend the whole day there and see much more.

It was very good with lots to see and try. Takes a couple of hours or more to go round it. Lots of stairs though.

Cheap-ish hour's entertainment

Best part is the mirror maze, the rest is unfortunately quite forgettable. Ruined a bit by the mouthy American tourists always standing in our personal space with their masks off.
