The first thing is, there is a load of props. From a load of Iron Man suits ( from the Mark 1 to the Hulk Buster ) and then we walk through the rest of the team. From The Hulk, via Captain America to Thor and the smaller members ( Black Widow, Hawkeye, Ant-Man and Wasp ) with a detour via the infinity stones.
It’s a wonderful exhibition for kids of all ages as it’s massively interactive with the chance to prove you are worthy enough to lift Thor’s hammer to try and become Iron Man himself with a great Iron Man training simulation where you get the chance to wear one of Tony’s suit. You can sit on Captain America’s Harley Davidson motorbike as well as try and prove that you have what it takes to become a member of S.H.I.E.L.D. in a, well, I’ll leave that to you to discover when you come down and enjoy the show.
I was told it would take about 90 minutes to go around and it wasn’t wrong. You can take a lot longer if you try everything and watch everything that’s there. It took me about that time but I was rushing around more than actually concentrating on everything on offer.
It’s a perfect event for anyone who is a fan of The Avengers. If you’re not that big a fan, I have to say I’m in that camp, it’s still a huge amount of fun even if it’s working out what everyday items have been used in a novel way to make some of the amazing props on display.
The other thing it has going for it is the incredibly easy to find location. It’s about 2 minutes walk from the Docklands Light Railway station, Prince Regent. You also have to book for the, very, limited number of visitors allowed to enter every day at the official website.
