It's that bad it's funny. It's like a 10 year old has created the dinosaur models. My 3 year old loved it though! It's closed down now for obvious reasons.

Visited with my little girl and what a waste of time! The places doesn't seem finished and some of the displays didn't work. Really not sure what the dark maze was meant to be about. Definitely not worth the admission fee as we were there...More

Nothing here is worth the money. A few really cheap looking dinosaurs and a sand pit for £4 each is shocking really. Would have been happy to pay £1 each, people running the place were nice but the actual place is not worth a visit...More
