After an overwhelming response from fans in London, Marvel’s Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. is now open in Cardiff at St David’s Shopping Centre.
The news follows a hugely successful run for S.T.A.T.I.O.N. in London, New York, Seoul, Paris, Singapore, Beijing, Taipei and Las Vegas – where it has set up a permanent exhibition.
This highly anticipated multi-room exhibition offers fans of all ages the opportunity to delve into the super-workings and backstory of each member of The Avengers as they train to become an agent of the S.T.A.T.I.O.N.
S.T.A.T.I.O.N. is an acronym for Science Training and Tactical Intelligence Operative Network, and is where guests can step inside the popular films and become part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, whether trying to lift Thor’s Hammer or taking a sneak peek at Bruce Banner’s Lab.
As part of their training, fans will get the opportunity to interact with props and costumes straight from the big screen.
• The Thor Observatory – dedicated to Thor Odinson, King of Asgard and son of Odin. Test your worthiness by attempting to lift a simulation of Thor’s Hammer, Mjölnir, view Thor’s outfits and study the universe and its current parameters using NASA’s EYE on the exoplanets program.
• Check out Captain America’s personnel file and explore the cutting-edge science that made Steve Rogers into Captain America.
• Iron Man Engineering Bay – trainee agents have the chance to not only view Iron Man’s iconic suits but also play a virtual experience wearing Hulkbuster Armour!
• Ever wondered what Bruce Banner’s Lab looks like? Explore the Bio Lab transformation of Dr. Banner’s superior brain as he morphs into Hulk.
Also, keeping up with the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe, Cardiff’s Marvel’s Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. exhibition includes new character displays on Black Panther and The Wasp.
The exhibition has provided a super-powered dose of science and technology by NASA to enhance the authenticity of the experience and pique visitors’ interest in real-world science and technology.
With comprehensive educational materials available for teachers, plus supporting materials created by Quantum Victoria, it is a thrilling learning experience for high school children to follow STEM pathways by amplifying the scientific themes and characters that are core to Marvel’s storytelling.
Steven Madeley, General Manager for St David’s Cardiff said: “We are so excited to be bringing the Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. to Wales. Choosing St David’s as the first UK location for the exhibition outside London puts Cardiff on the map alongside iconic cities across the world that have enjoyed it so far, including Las Vegas, Paris and New York. With the brand-new Avengers film hitting cinemas soon, we know that the exhibition will be a huge hit with families and fans of the franchise. The Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. will be in St David’s throughout the summer, providing the perfect activity to entertain the family and Marvel fans from the May Half Term, right throughout the summer months and into September!”
