Brilliant day out for the family

Lots to entertain, my kids loved it! And its free to upgrade the tickets to an annual pass so can come back again.

Way too expensive for a non-working "adventure".

Could have been an interesting day out. Big disappointment when paying 30+ (for family of 3) only gives you entrance to a non functional experience. A lot of items were broken and/or badly maintained. Dark, cold building with poor guidance. Could have been so much more attractive with a little more effort. Just a waste of money.

Worst experience Ever!

My wife and I decided to visit the Magna Centre with our two grand children on a cold and miserable day in the Easter holidays. It turned out to be more miserable than we imagined and nearly £50 lighter in our pension funds. First, there were no concessions for two adults and two children at the reception desk, and no reductions for senior citizens. The receptionist was very abrupt when we enquired about any discounts that may be available. We also enquired about a family ticket, but we may as well have asked for the moon! Secondly, when we entered the main building we were greeted with a very cold, dark environment with screens that did not work, very little information about what we were meant to be 'experiencing' and that was even before we got to the first zone. We entered the Fire Zone first, but most of the aparatus on display did not work, so we moved on to the Air Zone next with even less working. This continued throughout the whole visit and all of us (including the kids) were just happy to leave the building as soon as we could. There should be some guidance around the place, but we did not see one person to ask during the visit. The worst experience for me though (as a retired engineer), was the total lack of maintenance being carried out on anything. Surely if you wanted to see how things worked in a Steel Works you would expect machines and aparatus to be functional, but sadly, this was not the case. We will not be visiting the Magna Centre ever again.and I will strongly recommend to my family and friends to avoid the same experience that we had.

waste of money

The staff on the desk were very rude, miserable. Last thing you need after a long drive ,and paying £33 to get in. What a waste of money. It was dark cold . Most of the stuff was broken nothing worked . I had no idea where to go due to poor directions. Don't eat the food its Absolutely bad. I got a refund for the food.Over all a complete waste of time and money.You have to pay extra to play outside another £21 for three kids.
