Good but expensive

We all had a fab time but we were finished in 45 minutes and paid £45 for the 3 of us so was very expensive. Would definitely do it again but only if it was on a deal.

Wanted to do something a bit different so glad I found this! Kids aged between 12-15 loved it. Good fun, memorable experience (though my reaction to the vortex tunnel was a bit unexpected!) Definitely recommended visiting here if you're in Edinburgh

Hi, and thank you for recommending us so highly. We're delighted to hear you had great fun and that we had something to entertain the whole family. We hope you've recovered from the Vortex Tunnel, it really is a head spinner! Thank you for visiting and we hope you'll visit us again in the future.
