Two children - aged 8 and 6. Eight year old thought it was exciting. Six year old cried at the loud bangs. More variety would have been useful instead of all the bangs. And more audience participation on stage. But humour appreciated. All in all it was ok but seemed a little amateurish.

An all engaging show for children and adults. An amazing way to learn about science with fun and fact. Our boys were talking about it all the way home and they want to go again. Highly recommended
