Enjoy the thrill of Serious Play
serious play
Playing...a look at leisure in the 21st century
'Serious Play' will invite the visitor to experience the thrill of playing.

It will be the most technologically animated zone in the dome.

Visitors will join the Parallax Ride which will take them upwards past a myriad of displays.

Coherent images will come out of apparently formless colours and shapes and 3-dimensional objects will float within the displays activated by other visitors.

An inflated transparent skin which gently rises and falls will surround the ride.

From the top of the zone, people will be able to abseil, climb or slide to a lower level where selected innovations will evoke the future of leisure.

A cinematic experience will also allow visitors to play with interactive audience technology to decide the outcome of a filmed storyline.
