You can’t go wrong with all you can eat buffet and it is quite difficult to get pizza and pasta wrong, so this is a safe choice and if you’re hungry enough you can make this worth the money.

Top tip is to try and avoid peak times as the crowds can be ridiculous and people can forget their manners when they are hungry which is unfortunate but a fact of life in this day and age I guess.

I feel that they could benefit from a better system of getting people seated, giving them a plate and cup and taking payment from them which seemed to be a little bit of a faff.

This was definitely my favourite place to eat though in any case and surrounded by easy rides like Congo River Rapids, so an hours queuing/digesting and a subtle ride afterwards.

So basically if you like a Pizza Hut buffet then you will like this as they are virtually the same except for the name!

As we arrived it was quite busy but we got seated quite quickly. We were explained how it worked and paid for our meal straight away. The pizza and pasta was buffet style help yourself. The quality of the pizza was great and the pasta was really tasty too. I would recommend going here for lunch.

We ate at Explorers this weekend for the first time. We have previously avoided it as we had a bad experience at the Pizza and Pasta Buffet at Warwick Castle.

We were pleased to find out that the overall experience at Explorers was much better.

We were seated quickly and our payment taken - we are annual pass holders which means the 20% discount made the cost far more reasonable. Plates and cups were brought over and off we went.

The salad bar was well stocked and had a good variety. We are vegetarian, and found that there was a good selection of pizza and pasta available. 2 different options for both pizza and pasta, with garlic bread and lots of salad.

The pizza is of the quality you would expect from a buffet. It reminded me a lot of pizza at high school! The food was being regularly replenished and was hot, although on occasions the dough was a little undercooked.

The drinks selection was good, with no full sugar options. This has caused a few concerns with others, but it didn't bother us at all.

Overall we enjoyed our meal and would return. We didn't feel rushed, the staff were friendly and the food was of a reasonable standard.
