terrible customer service
, Feb 2020
I was not contacted by Viator to inform that the adverse weather conditions had resulted in the ride being closed. viator has been informed of the decision to close the ride 3 days prior but did not pass this message on. The ride provider could not contact me directly as viator refused to release my contact details. It was a wasted and expensive trip to London

Good attraction and great fun but communication a bit lacking
, Nov 2019
Really enjoyed the experience. We all had fun. However, we were turned away on the day we booked for and we had to come back the next day. Some health and safety concern which was never explained. The communication over the re-booking was lacking- it was never confirmed by email. We came back the next day without being sure we would be able to use the slide, but all turned out fine in the end. Beware!
