Member of staff in the shop asked if I could “get out” so she could walk past to get to the counter. Rude comments made about the group of tourists who walked in as well... Nice customer service!

Me and my partner went here and felt we payed a lot of money for something that we only spent about half an hour walking around. Defiantly only for families.
