'Six year old Johnny gave it a big thumbs up. He was able to try to read the clues for himself, as well as following and engaging with the story and trying to spot the hidden jewels before Max (or Zap) found them. He particularly liked the way the exhibits suddenly came to life and ''really really'' liked Zap.'
