I can no longer make my full body experience - will you refund me?
Unfortunately, experiences are generally non-refundable but please tell us what happened and we will try make a plan. Most likely is we can find you another slot.
My discount code isn’t working - why is this?
Usually, this will be because the code you are using isn’t applicable for the specific date you are booking for, as often codes are for periods, e.g. preview slots, student discount days. Make sure to double-check when the discount code you have been provided with, is valid for your booking.
I forgot to include my discount code - can I add it on?
Unfortunately, discount codes cannot be applied after the tickets have been booked. Ensure that you check your booking thoroughly before it is processed and include any codes you wish to employ! If this has happened please bring your code with you on the day and we will see what else we can offer you.
