From toddler to teenager to grandparents all are welcome and we have a wide variety of hands-on exhibits for everyone to enjoy.

Young babies are welcome and will love the sights and sounds of our World of Illusions.
Our attractions are not suitable for pushchairs and we have a buggy park in our foyer where you can leave your buggy for the duration of your visit. You can borrow one of our brilliant baby carriers – there’s no charge. Baby carriers are cleaned and sanitised after each use. If you would like to reserve one in advance please contact us. The minimum weight required for use is 3.5kg (8lbs) and 53cm (21 inches) in height. The maximum weight is 14.5kg (32 lbs).
We have baby changing facilities in our male and female toilets, and we have nappies available if you need them; just ask a member of staff. The hand dryers in the toilets are quite loud so please be aware if you are using these facilities.
We proudly support breastfeeding on our premises as part of the Breastfeeding Friendly Scotland scheme. Whilst we do not have a dedicated, discreet feeding area we do have benches on every level you are welcome to use. Our staff will be happy to direct you to a seating area and to provide water on request while you feed your infant.
Pregnant women are welcome to enjoy the attraction at their own pace, there is no time limit to your visit. Be aware that we only have stairs to access six floors, but seating is available on each floor. Unexpected mirrors, patterns and moving images may cause motion sickness.
Children aged 12 and under need to be accompanied by an adult during their visit. An adult qualifies as anyone aged 16 and over.

Seasonal Events 


We run a range of fun-filled seasonal events all year round, all included in admission. With seasonal trails at Easter and Halloween, themed exhibits and decorations at Christmas, Chinese New Year and summer, there is always a reason to re-visit and experience our World of Illusions all over again. Sign-up to our mailing list or follow us on social media to find out what is coming up. 


With over 100 interactive exhibits we have something all ages can enjoy. We encourage advanced booking to guarantee your chosen date and time of visit. 

Children under 5 years old go FREE. Children aged 5-15 years are £17.95. By booking online in advance you can save £1 on all ticket types (off-peak only). We don't offer a family ticket as we understand that each family is unique and we want to be fair in our pricing for all. 

We work with ScotRail 'Kids for a Quid', where you can use your valid ScotRail ticket to get one free child entry for every full paying adult. Please ask for a 'Kids for a Quid' ticket when booking your train journey. This offer is valid only for bookings before 11am or after 6pm.

To secure your entry timeslot please book all other tickets in advance through our website here, including any under 5s. Then use the online code 'SCOTRAILKIDS40' to claim.

If you have any questions you can call or email us.
