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
