“We were transfixed from the beginning to the end of this spectacular performance. There was so much to see, hear and experience that you didn't know where to look next. I cannot recommend this highly enough. From arriving at the well organised car park to walking into the Viking village and then to the actual performance itself...high standards abounded! Costumes, sound, special effects and so very much more. Thanks for one of the best experiences of our lives.” B5231DUchrisw from Congleton TripAdvisor 5* Review
