I'm not sure where to begin on this place. For a start it's overpriced for what you get especially if you have a couple of adults and kids with you it's not Gona be cheap. In fact, with that being said, I probably wouldn't return...More

Is it??? Has there been a lot of deaths there???
thanks for your honest account, Lily. I've always fancied the Time Capsule with the kids but, on your review, I don't think I'll make the journey now. I thought it was meant to have been refurbished a year ago too.
