Action Stations in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard

Action Stations is a famous attraction at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. Here is a brief guide to what is inside:

When you first enter the building the first thing you notice is the smiley, happy staff at the help desk. If you look even further over to the left you will see their iconic rock climbing wall and the entrance to Laser Quest. If you walk straight ahead then you will reach the helicopter flight simulator and another rock climbing course with a difference. It moves. This means you can go on indefinitely until you fall off, which is incredibly likely as it also tilts back and forth so you can almost be climbing along the ceiling! Highly recommended by our team of journalists who are here today.

Also on the ground floor is a simulator that makes you feel like you are in the movie displayed in the cinema room on the first floor. Accompanying it on the top floor are a section of interactive systems that teach their users about the tide and sonar. There is also a laser maze that teaches about light beams and mirrors.

There is also a lovely café which serves a wide array of foods and drinks. There are some scientific demonstrations that explain how vehicles move through water. Dotted around the building are some small games that are designed to keep younger visitors entertained.

All in all this is a wonderful place to visit for people of all ages and we hope to see you here soon.
