Tip 1. Car park opposite is very busy - so give yourself plenty of time to find car parking space - also they were faults with most the machines when we visited! Tip 2. It's a small venue so space is limited before your tour...More

Hello. A 12 year old and 14 year old are perfect ages for the experience, but must be accompanied by an adult. Pirate's Quest is a family attraction so its suitable for all ages. Many thanks.
