Event details

An evil genius has a dastardly plan to take over the world by stealing the keys to a magnificent Moon rocket. As you can imagine, stealing a Moon rocket isn’t easy, so the evil genius is recruiting a team of minions to help.

On-the-job training is provided for wannabe minions, so step inside our theatre to uncover the science needed to complete the mission.

The Science Theatre is equipped with an analogue induction loop.

During busy times, we request that you visit the planetarium, Science Theatre and Motion Ride once - this is to allow visitors to enjoy the experience too. Thanks for your consideration.

Warning: this show contains flashing images and lights.
