Only just opened, but had good few hours here. Loved the interactive theme & the ability to touch things! Great for younger children – TripAdvisor

Firstly, I just want to say how great the activities were in the craft tent.  My daughter, who doesn’t usually choose to do that kind of thing, would have happily sat for the whole afternoon making all of the crafts you had on offer. Thank you to everyone working in the tent for all your hard work, patience and enthusiasm. The kids who visited obviously were all enjoying it. – Survey response
