Go to W5 every time I come home to Ulster with kids. They seem to like it more every year. My children aged 8-12 had to be dragged away after 2.5 hours. I really enjoyed it too.

Came here not expecting a lot but OMG my kids were entertained. From the Big Bang show and especially the area with Spa role playing my kids were all over it. Had to drag them out after 4 + hours. Would definitely recommend for kids...More

Very disappointing day out. You had to pay extra money to enter the spacebase for 45 minutes play time. This was a clear example of pure profiteering. Children were bored. Staff were unfriendly and treated adults like idiots! Won't be back. Spend your money elsewhere.More

A great place to spend the whole day with kids. They enjoyed every minute and would recommend it for anyone visiting Belfast.

Great family day out for kids of all ages. Loads to do to meet all kids interests from climbing to space age play area, virtual reality, building games and interesting science experiments. Perfect for kids up to age 11 or 12.

Since our last visit W5 has had a huge overhaul and what a good job!! The exhibits have been updated & improved. The entrance hall was much more inviting with life size Lego models which the kids loved. The climbing section was a great hit...More

We went to W5 with kids. They had a very good time there. There is a lot of attractions and things to do but unfortunately not many for adults so I think that adults should have a free entrance. An overall good place to go.

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.
