Unfortunately due to the nature of the building we are unable to move push chairs and wheel chairs through the attraction.

Hello. A 12 year old and 14 year old are perfect ages for the experience, but must be accompanied by an adult. Pirate's Quest is a family attraction so its suitable for all ages. Many thanks.
