Sorry you did not enjoy your visit, most youngsters do find something to fullfill their trip. The tunnel road area seems to fill that requirement. Please ring us if you are still dissatisfied.

You should be ok . Ask at reception desk if you could go in a smaller group. Depending how busy the day is this could be arranged.

We used to allow dogs in the site when we were quiet, but due to issues of some dogs fouling the site and the risk of children getting germs only assistant dogs are allowed on site.
