Our two boys really enjoyed their time in the troll cave. They were 6 and 4, and were definitely challenged by some parts of it, but the guide is able to change the scary factor according to the group. They both keep talking about it and right now are working on a map of our house for our own house troll. The imagination factoring the Troll Cave is really high with lots of back story and details about trolls. I think it’s really unique for kids to experience such an immersive imaginative space with adults being part of the fantasy. I would recommend to all kids who have an interest in things that are a little bit spooky.

Cheers Luke ! We really appreciate your review. We're trying to give kids a way to be challenged in a controlled environment and get them to "look beyond their personal comfort envelope". Like many parents, we feel there's just too much bubble wrap out there nowadays. Every child is different and we don't want to "overcook "the challenge factor...So it's a tricky balance tailoring the presentation to individual families. The good news is that with the parents supporting, this becomes a growth experience ... "feeling a sense of uncertainty but taking on the challenge anyway". Great team building for the whole family !

Thanks very much Steve ! Pete IS great and we just love this opportunity to immerse the whole family in our wee adventure..."sort of a cross between an Escape Room & a Bear Hunt !"

Fantastic and unique experience!

We didn’t know what to expect but boy did the Troll Cave exceed our expectations! An amazing concept and Peter was an incredible guide and made it so much fun. We took our 3 girls - 11, 10 & 10 and they had such a great time working out the clues along the way! Loads of fun for the whole family!

Thanks very much Sarah! Yes I think it would be difficult to imagine a more adept Troll Wrangler than Peter ! We really appreciate your support and are just relieved that you were able to get the better of naughty ol' "Tom". Cheers !
