  1. I was really looking forward to this attraction opening. When I saw the entry prices, plus getting the train into London, it is really too expensive. The one in Blackpool Pleasure Beach the prices are far more reasonable at Adult £8, Child/Senior £5, Student £7 and they also do discount prices which makes it a lot cheaper and more affordable in the present economic climate. So now we won’t be coming along.
