Times & Ticket Prices

The event will take place on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st August 2022.


On the day of your visit, you will be welcome to arrive from 10am and stay with us until we close at 5pm.

The time you choose when booking is the time your TRAIN DEPARTS from Clayton West to transport you to Shelley Station; it is NOT your arrival time!  Don't be late for your steam train ride or you might end up as a dragon's dinner!

On arrival at Clayton West Station, you'll need to check in and take hold of your detective notes. This important document includes an introduction to the mystery, instructions on how to solve the case and hints and tips to help solve the mystery.  There'll also be blank space to make those all-important notes.  REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR OWN PEN/PENCIL!

Then, it's time to start mystery-solving...  finding clues from the REAL LIFE dragons at Clayton West before taking your steam train ride to Shelley Station to discover even more important riddles to solve!
