What our visitors say

"After nearly three years we paid our second visit to see whether we would still find this attraction a great day out. It's fantastic to see the improvements, it was great before, now it is fantastic. My 8 year old literally could have stayed here for days on end exploring, investigating, inventing, playing and learning. This place makes science fun and exciting and really delivers the wow factor. It is clean, clever and creative. Full hands-on science for all the family. The animation section is great fun and my son reallly enjoyed the tv section where you can be a tv presenter or be on the editing desk. The staff are enthusiastic and engaging with the children and are around to help and facilitate activities. As before I can't fault this attraction at all, it's excellent, top marks."
