Whilst away on holiday for a few days to Blackpool, myself (Sarah) plus my partner Lee, we chose to visit this amazing, once in a lifetime, hidden gem attraction, we had never been before, however we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay and our day, we were made to feel extremely welcome, we would like to thank the lady who came up to speak to us both from the factory floor and the rock that we both got given was just yummy,and was still warm, also we would like to thank Suzanne in the office area downstairs as when we got to the office we asked kindly if we could be given some more rock to take home with us and we were given plenty of free rock and lollipops and plus we had chosen also to buy some flavoured rock as a momento of our very special day,and this was only very cheap also to buy, if you are in Blackpool please go for this experience as it's just totally unmissable, and we would definitely return. Thankyou so much to all again for such an unforgettable, truly once in a lifetime experience!!

Have been a couple of times watching rock making and each time a lady has come up the stairs to give me a piece of rock which was still warm. The factory is a 10 minute walk from Morrisons at Blackpool Airport along Amy Johnson Way. If driving there is a large car park outside. Just go to the lady in the reception area and she directs you up the stairs to a viewing area which has a TV which shows the different processes in putting letters in the rock. There are also sticks of rock with persons names for sale as well as packs of off-cuts. Very interesting watching the making, cutting and packing of the sticks of rock.

Turned up and rather bewildered by the experience. No one around so we wandered up to the viewing platform. Lots of empty display boxes. A few posters. A TV screen switched off. A window to the rock makers. That's it. We switched the DVD on ourselves and watched it for ten mins then left. As we left a lady bumped into us and apologised explaining that the factory attraction is closed down. Nothing on website. Rather disappointing - a piece of rock to taste might have sweetened the disappointment and wasted journey but sadly was not offered.

So, in the absence of coronation rock publicizing that this attraction is no longer operating, I will do it for them here!
