4D Theatre poster

The 4D Theatre

  • 2 September 2014 — 31 December 2018 *on now

The Napier-Railton Race Experience
Just as John Cobb and Sir Malcolm Campbell did in the 1930s, you can now see, hear, feel and even smell what it would have been like to race around the concrete banked circuit in a pre-War racing car. With exclusive access to the track at Montlhéry just outside Paris, this was the ideal choice for filming the action sequences as it remains the closest in structure to the original Brooklands circuit. Together with the team at Metropolis Entertainments it was clear that we had to create the pits and crowds to complete the effect of a 1930s race so a call out for re-enactors in period dress, cars, mechanics and officials was put out through the Museum’s social media channels and its own Membership. Running time approximately 8 mins.

Red Arrows in 3D
Discover the thrill of flying with the RAF Red Arrows during one of its sensational aerobatic displays in ‘Red Arrows 3D’. With stunning high definition 3D vision and flight simulator motion technology, you can see and feel for yourself what it is like in the cockpit as the ‘Reds’ fly in amazing close formation and solo manoeuvres. Running time 7 mins.

A lap of Le Mans in Mike Hawthorn’s Jaguar
British Racing legend Mike Hawthorn is your driver as you take a lap with him in his Jaguar D-type around the circuit at Le Mans. What makes this a unique experience is that you are seeing the actual film and commentary made by Mike at the track on a blistering sunny day in 1956. With an introduction from Tiff Needell who reveals the original car he drove in, this time piece is a gem that will make you believe that you were there. Running time approximately 7 mins.


Height and other restrictions apply to this ride. You need to be 3ft 6inches or 107.2cm to take part.
