Has some issues getting our third batch of tickets. One teacher had a JCB card, but the other two of us succeded the first time and couldn't get the last 6 teenagers. We ended up having to pay cash. The ride was great though. So not all love but there was an overall a good experience.

The kids had an amazing time at the aquarium. Some points: - The bathrooms were disgusting, really dirty and smelt. - The lack of tables to eat something afterwards, as it was lunchtime when we finished.

Miss most of it because so crowded. Mostly visitors fault for standing against the glass forever to look but must be a better way to keep people back so you can see anything. Or limit people at such busy times. Got about 40% seen. Thanks
