On my last visit to XXL As a wheelchair user The staff seemed awkward dealing with me.... Either too much ... over the top OR kept distance even when I needed assistance. A better balance is needed? ALSO after paying same as everyone I was not given access safely to the fun area. Disabled people need FUN too !!!! Disabled toilet key was a hassle to get in time, nearly wet myself waiting. I am planning on going to XXL 20th may 2016 and I hope all the issues raised will be dealt with, So I'll give 5 stars in advance. Because I understand how difficult it must be for the staff and venue and I'm a happy fun cheeky naughty man behind my disability who just wants to be included and enjoy what's left of my life. Let's all have a happy fun XXL. See you soon. Dave x
