  • Its decent, the kids enjoyed it. Its very short though, take your time. Staff were friendly, I wouldn't like to pay full price, we got a deal tied into visiting Lego land. Would be nice if the parents had somewhere to sit when the kids are in the jungle gym thing, there was some strange stools that were uncomfortable. A proper eating area would be good then we'd stay longer. Overall, nice experience.
  • My three year old loved it. Lots of people complaining that it's too short. You can actually spend as long as you like looking at each fish! One hour is about all the attention span you might expect from a small child. Great staff great location. Look out for two for one entry offers everywhere.
  • It isn't as comprehensive as Brighton or Scarborough, but then it also isn't right by the coast. An annual pass makes sense if you are relatively local as you also have access to the Lego discovery place which is virtually next door. Worth a visit if it's much closer than Scarborough, however if there isn't much difference in the distance for Scarborough or Manchester, I would probably go to Scarborough. Staff were friendly and with it being new, everything was clean and we'll presented.
  • We had decided to go for our Daughters 1st Birthday. She really liked it and loved the fish and the lights, but we were done within 40 minutes. Luckily we had got a 2 for 1 voucher so was only £19 for the three of us. I wouldnt have been happy to pay full price due to the time spent there. Staff were lovely.
  • Not much to do as it only took me half n hour to go round but I can't fault the staff at all. Really friendly and helpful especially with a little boy I look after who has Cerebral palsy. With him being in a wheelchair it was harder for him to join in with things but because of the staff they made that Happen so I had one very happy little boy all down the staff but the place should rethink about prices or get more things to do so you can spend a few hours in there and it would be brilliant.
