We spent the day going Go Karting, looking at cars in the Museum, doing the Virtual reality experience, playing mini golf and sitting in the café watching the cars go past. It was an amazing experience very family friendly would definitely recommend for everyone. Kids also really enjoyed 5 stars. Make sure you check out the Loo with a View!”
