4D Experience

4D Experience 679wide

Our 4D Experience (launched by James May) is located in the Test Flight Hangar.  Visitors can experience 3D animated visuals with an added dimension of dynamic seat movements, water spray, leg ticklers and smoke effects in a purpose built theatre.

There are a number of rides available to choose from including:

The Red Arrows 

(Duration approx 6 minutes)

Visitors will experience the thrill of flying in formation with Red 1 and see the precise skill involved in some of their famous moves. 

B17: The Mission

(Duration approx 10 minutes)

Join the crew of the Kalamazoo Girl as they head deep into enemy territory on a Second World War bombing mission vital to the Allies cause. Using computer animation combined with real-life actors, this poignant epic film will excite and enthrall.

Dog Fight - Red Baron

(Duration approx 5 minutes)

Visitors have the opportunity to experience genuine combat with the flying aces of the First World War and see the speed with which the pilot reacts.

Boarding Passes cost £5.00 per person.  A Saver ticket at £16.00 allows four people to ride together.

If you decide to take advantage of a second ride on the 4D Experience, it will cost just £3.00 per person.

Tickets can be purchased on arrival in the Visitor Centre, at the Museum gift shop or in Test Flight where the 4D Experience is located.  Children under 6 must be accompanied by an adult.
