Fantastic and well organized attraction

Fantastic day out. Was worried it wouldn’t be suitable for our 2yr old but he loved it. They have managed the covid situation brilliantly and it was very well organized. We never felt like there were too many people and there were plenty of wipes and sanitizer. Would highly recommend.

Not as good as we thought

The maze and the bridge were the only two good attractions the rest was pretty boring ! The roof top view was nice but the first 3 floors (of 6) were pretty dull

The vortex tunnel and mirror maze were the kids favourite. The views from the top over Edinburgh were also fantastic. It was very clean with lots of Han sanitizer and a one way system. A great experience

Nice place to visit

It is a good idea to loose 2 hours in this location. The camera obscura is still closed after so much time I don't understand why.. I think is the most disappointing thing about going to camera obscura.. Not being able to access it.. But the word of illusions is actually pretty fun for everyone.

One of the best experiences in Edinburgh

Absolutely amazing only sorry we couldn’t see it all as we had to get to the theatre to see a show, we will remember next time to allow more time
