Enter a world where art meets technology and animatranics brings monsters to life! This exciting exhibition is based around the various stages in the creation of monsters and creatures made for motion pictures from script writing to creature design and mechanics.
Every aspect of animatronics is included. Experiment with different lighting effects, touch the guts of the pitch black aliens, direct dinosaurs and see how mechanical eyes respond to the movements detected by motion sensors.
