We were recently asked if we would like to visit the SpyZone at Gulliers Kingdom and we jumped at the chance with a Nephew Daniel (age 7) with a sharp mind and lots of energy and my daughter Bethany (age 12) with her methodical brain and calmness we knew that our Spy’s were ready for the challenge! or were we??
So What We Were Told About SpyZone:
Fun, adventure and action packed challenges await you on a unique journey of discovery and surprise!
As a spy apprentice you will combine skills with thrills as you scramble through secret shafts from one spy challenge to the next, all against the clock!
You will learn to steer a steady hand, crack codes and dodge security lasers as you train to become a top spy!
Only then will you be ready to set off on an undercover top secret mission…
Whenever your country needs you…
Whenever the time comes…
The SpyZone is located outside of the main Gulliver’s Kingdom Park and so after arriving Daniel, Bethany, Vicky (Sister in Law) and I were led in to the briefing room for a full explanation of how it works and what out spy packs contained and how to use some of the fun kit! Then it was off on all fours through the tunnels to our mission!
All the missions were in different rooms that lead on from the previous one you entered, there is some energy needed and a couple of tunnels did have me stuck for a minute, not because I am over weight or short but in fact it was because I have not used energy like that since I was a kid. You have to manoeuvre up, down and through with the natural enthusiasm you mainly find in children!! It was fantastic!
Each room has control panel and a button to start the activity along a written account of the task your going to perform. My biggest piece of advice I would give is to stop your children pressing the start button as soon as you enter a room, on our visit Daniel and Bethany got very excited and pressed the button first, then didn’t listen and then we had to read the instructions while the timer ticked down .. nothing like a bit of pressure!
I have to say as an adult I was not expecting to love it as much as I did, the kids enthusiasm and excitement was really catching and after the first rooms Vicky and I really got into it and aimed to crack those codes!!
The Laser room although there was no mental task to perform we all had to make it through the laser beams without making them beep and I don’t think I have ever crawled on my front with my Spy Pack or with anything else come to that with such determination! .. by far one of my favourite rooms!
When we had completed our missions we were really grateful for the lovely coffee shop/tea bar in the building, and the other member’s of our group had already discovered it!
We had a fantastic time on our trip but don’t just take our word for it why not see what our junior spies thought:
