  • Bigger than I expected and fun for the whole family. I loved the laser game experience and the pin ball machines. I was with people who had been here 20 years ago and they said it wasn't changed at all, so perhaps it's time to add some new attractions, but we had a nice night and I would recommend it to someone who hasn't been before.
  • Great place to visit while in Surfers Paradise, to fill in some time or even if you just need a break from the sunshine. Interesting and informative with plenty of interactive exhibits which will keep both the adults and kids amused. Take as long or as little as you like...to get the most out of it allow yourself an hour - an hour and a half. A few souvenirs for sale and lots of interesting photo opportunities. Some say the decor is a little dated, perhaps, but it doesnt detract from the fun time you'll experience...and of course a lot of the exhibits are from times gone by so of course they're going to be. Note - if you're a bit squeamish you may not like some of the exhibits ;-) Easy location, right in the heart of Surfers.
