Sci Fi Weekend

Our popular Sci-Fi on the Sidings event returns for the 1 and 2 April 2017 and it’s bigger and better than ever. This year we have a veritable galaxy’s worth of intergalactic thrills and space borne spills.


New attractions include visits from everyone’s favourite E-Ts, the alien from Alien and the predator from Predator. Take a trip through a wibbly-wobbly time vortex with a certain Doctor Who, enjoy Jurassic japes with the Dinosaurs from Jurassic World, take a spin on Flash Gordon’s Rocket Cycle, have a natter with Knight Rider’s Kitt and much more besides!

Tickets cost £14.80 per adult, £13.30 per concession and £9.40 per child. Come in costume with a friend and enjoy 2 4 1 travel! For more information and to book online click here.
