Reasons for trip

Staying in Qawra, we were going to catch two buses to get to the village, but another couple in the hotel asked if we wouldn’t mind sharing a taxi, so I downloaded the Bolt app and it cost €30 return – much easier than waiting for the hourly bus at Mellieha. Both drivers were super friendly, and drove properly as I warned them if they didn’t, I wouldn’t give them five stars!

We really didn’t know what to expect for our €9 each (senior price, €11 for adults during the winter months) – that included popcorn, a free photo and free postcard. We arrived just before 11.00 and were just having a quick look round when they asked for guests to take part in the movie. So glad we did – it was great fun – and I ended up being Popeye! After watching our performance in the cinema, we very much enjoyed reliving our adventures by downloading the video (which cost an additional €5). We thought it was all very good value for money.

Neither of us had actually seen the film – to be more than honest, it’s not really our cup of tea, but we thoroughly enjoyed the day – the film set is great to walk round – and there are lots of activities, including a crazy golf course – and for no real reason, it even includes a very comprehensive Christmas Wonderland to walk through! The games area includes everything from noughts and crosses to toss the loo rolls – there seems to be something to do or see around every corner.

We’re really not sure how anyone could fail to enjoy this, but it is geared to the young – and young at heart! We were there a good few hours – and enjoyed a lovely bowl of fish soup for lunch overlooking the bay.

However, the set is very steep and there are a lot of steps, so as much as they’ve done as much as possible for accessibility, I really wouldn’t recommend this to anyone with even moderate mobility issues – even getting to the set means walking down a very steep incline – you might be able to push a wheelchair down, but getting back up would be a very different matter.
