We are family with teenagers, energyland is the best place who love to have adrenaline rides. The childrens enjoy it so much. It's just so long queues to every ride because it's a school summer holidays. But everybody had really good time.

A very interesting trip, but demanding due to the distance and the number of stairs to overcome, but it is worth it. I recommend the organizers.

A nice experience with a great guide. It is best to take the first time slot of the day. You may be the first in the mines!

No issues at any point. Well organised from start to finish. Kept up to date on mobile from first registering.

The tour guide was amazing, definitely glad I went
