Event details

You can expect to be blasted with wind and smoke, and you'll even be able to smell the action, on Life's 4D Motion Ride experience!

 

For safety reasons you have to be at least 1.2 metres in height to use the Motion Ride. There are plenty of other things to enjoy if you’re smaller - just ask a member of staff.


Shows are on at various times throughout the day, daily show times are available on arrival.

The ride is also unsuitable if you are pregnant, suffer back or neck problems, have epilepsy, have heart problems, have a pacemaker or if you suffer from motion sickness. All visitors must be able to sit upright and step up into the seat (with or without assistance from a carer.) Visitors are responsible for the safe keeping of their own belongings.
 
During busy times, we request that you visit the planetarium, Science Theatre and Motion Ride once - this is to allow other visitors to enjoy the experience too. Thanks for your consideration.
