8yr old loved it here. Plenty to do. Favourite though, of course, was the virtual reality. Which of course was extra. Which makes this quite an expensive afternoon! Cafe was dirty too. And another coffee selling level wasn't open which would have been welcomed!More

Really enjoyed our visit to the W5. Our son really enjoyed himself as did we... Plenty to keep adults and kids amused. He particularly liked the big climbing frame :)

we were told this was worth the drive from Dublin but couldn't believe how amazing this is. Even though my son is not 4 years old until the end of Jan he loved it. Can't wait to bring him back

Wouldn't recommend unless you paid for kids only. The climbing area and space base play area(paid extra) are good fun. The rest is quite poor. Must say we were dissapointed 😟 the rest was ok, I'm afraid we are not coming backMore

What a brilliant place. Kids couldn't believe their luck. The climbing frame was a particular hit and all the many interactive games. Fabulous and well worth the money.

There is a massive car park at the Odyssey unless there is an event in the arena you should have no problems parking there. It's not expensive about £3 I think.

It would make for a fun few hours for 2 adults. If you enjoyed high school science you’ll love W5. You don’t necessarily need kids to go. And if you’re not in W5 grab a drink or a bite to eat in one of the restaurants nearby. More
