Booking and session types - what does your ticket cover?

  • Booking a standard ticket includes most activities in the centre with the exception of the VR experience and Creative Workshop. You have the option of adding these on in the booking journey if they are available on your chosen date. 
  • Package tickets like the Deluxe may include VR and extras to enhance your visit. What's included will be listed with the package type.

Play times


  • On days that are peak (weekends and school holidays), entry times are spread out throughout the day to allow you to pick a time most suitable to you. We want everyone to have the best time so we are limiting the number of guests and the time spent in the attraction. This means on peak days you will be issued with a time-limited wristband giving you a minimum of 2 hours.


  • Off peak days are weekdays during local school term-time. When booking one of these days you will notice that entry times are limited to entering at the start of the day. The centre has reduced hours on these days and guests are invited to join us for the full session opening hours for that day.
  • Off peak sessions include extra activities for children under 5 years. Our reduced price Adult and Toddler ticket will be available as a booking option for these sessions only.  

To check if we are open for peak day opening hours, or for an off peak set session, check the opening hours page
