What families are saying

August 2019

The ship and the show was great and my 5yo enjoyed it, but it was only 20 min long. It advertises as being 30 min which I felt was on the short side so was left a bit unsatisfied when it finished after 20 min

April 2019

It was not puppet show. Rather a movie. The ‘movie’ lasted only for 15 min. It doesn’t worse £5/person.

April 2019

The puppet show was interesting. I do think the show wasn't age appropriate - the children (aged 2-5) were scared of the pirate and dragon. It was raining so very wet inside, plus steep staircases - not user friendly with young children. Would have struggled with a 1 year old
