This was a suprise for my grandchildren 7,9 and 11 and it was very choppy and rather rough. So as much as it didn’t worry my son or I his partner and the children found it a little on the scarey side. The narration and info was good and as I have said the rough ride possibly impacted on it being less of a constant update which would have been great also we didn’t do many stops don’t know if that again was the weather impacting.
