Unfortunately we waited about 40 mins to get in but it as worth the wait. Good for the kids but quite a bit of queuing. Actors do a great job and price is about right for this kind of attraction.

We went last year and it was excellent, like the review before said, you were directed round the sight in small groups and had a time slot so none of the mazes were ever too busy. There was no queuing and we'd finished the whole...More
