“Tacky but worth a visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2012 via mobile

We went on a Thursday and stayed for the fireworks at dusk which were excellent.
We saw the 4d film which was reasonably entertaining and did the 'Arthur's quest' which our 4 year old loved. Any older will not be impressed it's quite lame but cheap enough.
If you are planning to visit lands end for the scenery anyway (which we were) thend the attractions are worth the £25 family ticket price but I would't make the effort to travel for the attractions alone.
Food was standard fast food slightly overpriced & underwhelming. We were disappointed to be able to get a table at the restaurant which looked lovely but they claimed to be full even though the place was empty!

“Just look at the view”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2012

Land End Limited ! under many owner have failed to understand that a building much like a motorway service station combined with trashy special effect cinema is not needed at such a spectacular point on the coast. Tag line should be .... The place no one visits twice.

“Go for the scenery - not the attractions”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012

Authur's Quest is the latest 'attraction' at the Land's End complex. The voice of Brian Blessed booms to guide you as you walk through the darkened rooms between interactive points where placing a hand or pulling a chain triggers some pretty mediocre (at least by Disney standards 15 years ago) effects. Effective use was made of mirrors which were sparkling clean at this newly opened exhibit. Perhaps it will appeal to children - I hope they keep sticky fingers off!

The other main attractions include the somewhat dated 'Air Sea Rescue SOS' - a film attempting to recreate the rescue of a fisherman by lifeboat and helicopter shown with vibrating floor effects. More effective was the '4D' film 'The Curse of Skull Rock' - a 3d animation with water spray and air jets (wind) although I didn't notice the promised leg ticklers or aromas.

Was it good value? Yes - I went on a 'locals go free day'!

There are many good reasons to come to Cornwall - 'The Land's End Experience' is not one of them.
