I had been past a few times over the years and finally went in when we passed by after a shopping trip. Great fun, all for the price of a pint of beer...we were talking about it for the rest of the day.

A really fun day out. Had a real laugh and learnt a lot about illusion and puzzles. I really enjoyed myself and highly recommend this place.
