To ensure your safety we have implemented a range of additional precautions and changes and our trips are now pre-bookable. 

To ensure we offer you the best value whilst implementing our new safety measures our pricing structure has changed as you now pay for a pod rather than individual tickets.

We believe we are are still one of the best priced attractions in the area and if you gift aid your ticket you can enjoy the trip as many times as you like for twelve months.
