Well, what can be said. Expensive $31 per head. Starts off in a room with a huge amount of cobwebs and massive fake spiders where some sort of ‘scary wizard (??)’ sets the mood (not very appropriately) for a true life story. We move on...More

I agree with the other reviewers. It’s weird, creepy but hilarious at the same time. Seems that the old owner and his grandson work it together. You end up in the grandson’s lounge room and go through his bedroom to exit. It’s expensive $32 each....More

I'm not 100% sure whether I enjoyed this, or got majorly swindled. We wandered into here recently and we told this was an attraction like no other. He was not lying. We were told it was an animation theatre, depreciating the capture of Ned Kelly....More

We LOVED it. Only reason I don't give it a 5 star rating is because the entry price is quite exorbitant considering that you can get in St Peter's Basilica in Italy for AU$31.80. However, we still tell all our friends to go through it...More

Hands down the worst, most expensive tourist attraction in Australia. $32/head will allow to see the best technology 1970 has to offer including a urinating robotic dog and a vomiting robotic man. The owner was friendly enough, but then again at $100/family i'd be smiling...More

An authentic experience of highway robbery and a 30 minute hostage situation. My wife and I, along with a couple of friends had the misfortune of spending $120 for the bizarre, and highly creepy, animated Ned Kelly "show". Apart from the 1980 style motorised human...More

Hi...I called at your place a few months ago and enquired about bringing a group of senior citz from Albury. I have set the date for Saturday 4th May. You kindly gave my husband and I a complimentary tour which we appreciated. I have forgotten how much you quoted for a group. Could you please let me know ASAP so I can get organised.There will probably be approx 30 of us. My plan at this preparatory stage is to leave Albury around 10.00am. Stop in Wangaratta to view and hear about the stained glass windows in Holy Trinity Cathedral. Arrive Glenrowan approx 12.30pm for lunch at ???? ....was it Colin and Linda????...Allowing 1 hour plus for that,we would then 'do' your show at say 2.00pm . Is this possible ? With coach costs and lunch I hope you can manage a good seniors discount for our group. Hoping to hear soon.....Audrey Davidson.
