Fantastic day out in the centre of Newcastle. The current Game 2.0 exhibition was a massive hit with my boys (8,6 &5) but they also loved the planetarium show, live science theatre and for the bigger 3 the 4d motion ride which is currently spongebob squarepants (you have to be 1.2m to ride which meant our youngest couldn't go but there was so much else to see that he didn't mind) The 8 year old had a fab 20 minutes in the experiment zone complete with lab coat and goggles extracting DNA whilst the younger ones built all sorts of things in the curiousity zone. The cafe was very reasonable and the disability access was great throughout the site. We spent over 4 hours here and the boys would happily have spent longer in the gaming exhibition.

Easy to get to by rail or car, nearby parking. We got discount for travelling by metro! Staff and exhibition representatives were very friendly and helpful. I spent over 3 hours here with my 16 and 7 yr old ...There was loads to do and see...choice and quality of food in cafe is very good. A great day out for all ages...

Fantastic day out. £31 for two adults and two teens and all the games you can play. The gaming exhibition was great and fully interactive. There is plenty more to do. The science theatre is more for younger kids but the 4D ride and planetarium were good. The cafe has a good choice of food and was very reasonable. Well worth a visit for at least 4 hours of entertainment.

I took two children under five and was pleasantly surprised that they were free to get in. At the moment they have Game 2.0 which my boys loved as they could play on all the old arcade games and this was at no extra cost. Upstairs there is a wonderful play facility for under 7's that kept mine entertained for hours. To get to experience everything, get there early and spend the day.

I have been heard a few times and enjoyed the varied activities. Highlights this time were the young scientists bit and the Gaming exhibition. The soft play/kids kitchen area is great, only thing is soft play is a toddler activity and for there to be a metal staircase very close to it, I had to run to retrieve my athletic toddler at one point, before an accident happened. These spaces are best enclosed I feel. Planetarium is brilliant. We have had a few good days here none the less.
