Do you have what it takes to be a Marvel S.T.A.T.I.O.N agent? Last weekend we took our very excited little boy to London Excel, where Marvel have unveiled their latest interactive exhibition.
After a brief video introduction and a security scan from Maria Hill, we were invited to enter the S.T.A.T.I.O.N, an advanced training facility for S.H.I.E.L.D’s ace team of agents. Zachary was rather overwhelmed when we first entered and he found himself face to face with the Hulkbuster! So when he got to don Iron Man’s Hulkbuster armour in a very cool and active VR experience he was super excited. As we moved through the rooms he enjoyed the great activities on offer, including various touchscreen games.
Highlights for the family also included the massive moving image of Hulk and Captain America’s motorbike from the opening scene of Avengers: Age of Ultron which you could hop on and pretend to ride. The real draw for Marvel Cinematic Universe fans will no doubt be the various props, costumes and sets from the movies themselves, all of which are scattered around the venue. Particular highlights include the various Iron Man suits (including the iconic Mark I armour from 2008’s Iron Man), Black Panther’s helmet, Hawkeye’s bow and arrows, and various costumes that cover most of the major players from the Avengers team.
Once you have made your way through each room there is a final game to play to complete your training. Each person becomes their favourite superhero, all interactively fighting together. This is a real treat for any Marvel fan and is a thrill from start to finish. With plenty of fun interactive exhibits for kids and an array of interesting items from the film’s themselves on display for fans to enjoy, all tastes are certainly catered for.
