Event details

Meet Rusty, an extra-terrestrial robot who will catapult you on an exciting journey, flying across our planet’s surface and down a ravine – before continuing your adventure in space, thanks to one of his many engineering gadgets!

 

For safety reasons, you must be at least 1.2 metres in height to use the 4D Motion Ride. This show will be on at various times throughout the day, daily show times are available on arrival.

Please note: 
​​​​​​​

  • Running time is approximately 5 minutes.
  • For safety reasons you have to be at least 1.2 metres in height to use the Motion Ride.
  • Because of the storyline and 4D effects, young children and some adults may find this scary.

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.
