They are very friendly and helpful here although activities are nothing special and quite expensive. I like the fact that they cater for a wide range of people, many of which require special care. Needs an injection of ideas...all a little lacklustre.More

Great place, been here many times and it never disappoints. Great activities, great staff, reasonably priced for a fun packed day. A gem hidden away in Mawdesley.
