Do you have what it takes to be a hero?

Now on

How would you react in a high-pressure scenario with lives at stake? Rescue puts you in charge as you discover what it’s like to be involved in land, sea and air rescues.

Experience the challenges, technology and 
training used by specialist rescue teams through a range of exciting hands‑on exhibits. Take the controls of a full-size helicopter simulator, navigate jet skis around obstacles, find your way through a smoke-filled room and much more!


Things to see and do:

  • Fly a helicopter simulator and get a bird’s eye view of a rescue scene.
  • Navigate a jet ski to test out surf lifesaving techniques.
  • Tackle a climbing wall and test your skills for a vertical rescue.
  • Use infrared cameras to look for the heat signals of missing people.
  • Test different fire extinguishers on simulated fires.
  • Explore how rescue technology has developed and how specialist equipment is essential in rescue operations.

Rescue consists of 17 interactive full-body science exhibits that allow for plenty of group interaction, role-play and encourages visitors to use problem-solving skills to solve simulated rescue scenarios.
