May battle commence this half-term!


Make sure you put your game face on when you come to Life this May half-term for an action-packed family day out full of video games and super heroes.

Half-term highlights:

  • Rock out with a multiplayer game or go head-to-head in a family challenge on an arcade classic – there's something for everyone in our exciting new exhibition Game On 2.0.
  • Join us for Super Hero Science – a show performed in Life’s in-house theatre that explores superpowers and whether they really defy the laws of science.
  • Watch as our Science Explainers examine the properties of different materials. Will they pass the super hero test?
  • Head to our Making Space to create a cardboard video game using split-pins!
  • Sit back and explore other planets without ever leaving the ground in the planetarium show Alien Worlds.
  • Swoop and fly through an unforgiving desert in the ultimate jet-powered race on the new 4D Motion Ride* Ravine Race.

 

*You must be at least 1.2m tall to ride the 4D Motion Ride.

*You must be at least 1.2 metres in height to use the 4D Motion Ride.

The Secret World of Gases programme is led by the UK Association for Science and Discovery Centres and funded by The Royal Society of Chemistry and BOC, the UK's biggest industrial and medical gases company.
