Event details

Discover what it would be like to fly to the Moon and experience NASA's Apollo 15 mission in this Motion Ride.


Experience every jolt and rumble of the roaring rocket as the Motion Ride moves mimic the action of launch, a lunar landing and re-entry to Earth.

Legend of Apollo has been produced in partnership with former NASA and Apollo astronaut, David R Scott, and tells the inside story of the lunar landings, with particular reference to the Apollo 15 mission.

Please note: 
​​​​​​​

  • Running time is approximately 6 minutes.
  • For safety reasons you have to be at least 1.2 metres in height to use the Motion Ride.​​​​​​​

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.
