Exhibition – “Carrier Flight” at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard (summer dates)

January 1, 2009toSeptember 30, 2009


Carrier Strike Takes Flight at Action Stations

Portsmouth Historic Dockyard is getting ready for the summer holidays with a new interactive exhibit at Action Stations, featuring the Royal Navy Aircraft Carriers of the future.

‘Carrier Strike’ includes a range of simulator games, giving members of the public the opportunity to get to grips with the new Queen Elizabeth Class Aircraft Carriers more than six years before they arrive at their home port of Portsmouth.

Located on the ground floor of Action Stations, ‘Carrier Strike’ includes a range of activities and fun for all ages:

  • There are over 27 large-scale interactive exhibits in Action Stations with endless opportunities to escape from irates in the simulator ride
    Race up the tallest indoor climbing tower in the UK
  • Shoot down a gunship helicopter
  • Fly a replica Merlin helicopter, just like the one on the navy’s newest and most advanced warship HMS Daring, equipped with realistic controls and buttons
  • Or simply enjoy the vast array of displays and interactive science and technology gallery.

For those wannabe James Bonds there is also ‘Command Approved’, a 25-minute film providing a window on the navy in action. It packs the punch of a James Bond film, but is the real world, not spy fiction. This is the navy facing real threats and dealing with them as they would on the high seas.

And what’s more, the interactive exhibits, facilities and games can be enjoyed all year at no extra cost by purchasing an all-inclusive gift aid ticket!

Include entrance to all attractions on site

£18.00 adults
£16.00 seniors
£13.50 children
£50.50 family (up to 5 members of the same family, maximum 2 adults/seniors)
