Easter espionage fun for young detectives

3rd April 2014

Easter espionage fun for young detectives FREE Easter Trail 14th to 25th April 2014. For those seeking an alternative Easter experience, the Royal Air Force Museum Cosford is just the place.

This Easter holiday, children can play detective as they take part in the Secret Spy Trail, where the only egg cracking will be of the secret code that trail followers are challenged to break.

The trail will guide young detectives around the National Cold War Exhibition, in the process taking in aircraft of all different shapes and sizes. Trail detectives will need to search the hangar to find all the answers hidden amongst the aircraft and exhibits on display and make a note on their trail sheet. After finding all of the answers, children must decipher the code to reveal the name of the secret spy. Correct trail entries will be entered into a draw and five lucky winners will win a £20.00 gift voucher to spend in the Museum Shop.

Taking place from Monday 14th until Friday 25th April, the Secret Spy Trail is sure to keep the younger members of the family entertained throughout their visit. So, if you have any young children in your family and are up for the challenge, pick up your free Easter Trail from the Admissions Desk on arrival at the Museum.

In addition to this, there is plenty for the whole family to enjoy at the Museum including getting a taste of the action in the 4D Experience. If you have ever wondered what it feels like to fly to the moon, participate in an intense mid-air combat or navigate through death defying canyons at supersonic speeds, wonder no more. Visitors to the RAF Museum Cosford will be able to experience all the thrills and exhilaration of powered flight by entering the Museum’s 4D Experience. The 4D Experience combines cutting-edge 3D computer animation with the added fourth dimension of special environmental effects, including seat movements, water spray, leg ticklers and smoke effects.

The RAF Museum is a day out that everyone from small children upwards will enjoy whatever the weather. Children and adults alike will be fascinated by fun ‘n’ flight. Packed with hands on excitement, it’s the easy way to answer all those questions about how aircraft stay up in the air. Whether you’re learning how to fly a Spitfire, investigating air flow with ‘The Blower’ or guiding a Hercules to a drop zone you will be learning and having fun. Parents and grandparents will be equally as entertained during their visit, with over 70 aircraft on display including the World’s oldest Spitfire, the mighty Vulcan bomber and the unique TSR2 to name but a few, there is something at the RAF Museum for visitors of all ages to enjoy!
