What is that?


It is a space tower at the Yorkshire Planetarium.

Outside the star theatre is our giant rocket tower climbing frame. Sharing the same dimensions as a Shuttle rocket booster, this frame, brought over from the United States, has been a great success for all ages. The challenge is to reach the top by climbing through layers of elasticated bands. It sounds easy …. but it isn’t

The bottom inflates (for safety) and you climb through the straps to the top where you slide down the slide- except that it is still in the Docks at Hull.
