Event details

Hitch a ride on this incredible voyage that has Sean and his friends searching for his long lost grandfather, which leads them to the elusive “Mysterious Island”.


​This immersive experience – that includes riding on the backs of giant bees, soaring over the jungle and through the treetops, and dodging the beaks of hungry birds – is a one-of-a-kind ride you won’t want to miss!


For safety reasons, you must be at least 1.2 metres in height to use the 4D Motion Ride.

Please note: 
  • This is a shortened version of Journey 2: The Mysterious Island – Chase over Atlantis which has been specially adapted for Motion Rides (not the whole film). 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.
