Mr 12 had a ball looking at the things and he especially liked the interactive displays. I enjoyed reading the info and thought most of it was interesting. Reasonable value for money - fun way to spend an hour.

Yes, we have an elevator especially for wheelchair access, and the attraction is flat all the way through. Our friendly staff will take you to the elevator and into the show.
