Introduction

Our sensory sensitive sessions are for people who could potentially find a visitor attraction overwhelming when open to the general public. They may prefer less people and where anything sensory-stimulating is managed, including the lights and sounds. These sessions would also be for the families, siblings, friends and carers of those who would prefer a Sensory Sensitive Session.

Yes there is, and it is called The Guildhall. It can be accessed at the end of the experience with an amazing range of fresh food and drink made on site by our wonderful kitchen team.

For Sensitive Sensory Sessions we do also allow food and drink to be brought and consumed in the Café Bar, although where possible try to avoid food and drink in the experience itself.

Yes there is, however please note it does not currently have a hoist. Additionally there are hand dryers in all the toilets, however we understand the noise can be uncomfortable for some, so for the first two hours of the Sensitive Sensory Session we will switch the hand dryers off and ensure paper towels are available.

We do have a manual wheelchair which can be pre-booked for free. Just mention it in the booking form (as there is only one it will be first come first serve). The same with sound-cancelling headphones; we have 2 which can be pre-booked for free via the booking form.

We have created an accessibility guide which you can read before your visit.

We open Wake The Tiger to the general public one hour after the Sensory Sensitive Sessions begin. It can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours plus to walk through the experience, and whilst we will do everything we can to maintain these sessions sensitively, there may be a point, particularly in the Café Bar, whereby the experience will become busier.

We love feedback, so whatever it is we can take it. It helps us grow and improve. If you would like to offer any feedback or suggestions before or after then you can email [email protected] . Equally during the session you can also talk to a member of staff.
