ACTION STATIONS IS CLOSED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LATEST GOVERNMENT COVID-19 GUIDELINES AND WILL NOT BE RE-OPENING WHEN PORTSMOUTH HISTORIC DOCKYARD RE-OPENS.
Action Stations is a high-tech, interactive indoor attraction housed in Boathouse 6. The boathouse itself was built between 1845 and 1848, and like the technology it now features inside, it was once at the forefront of design and innovation in the Victorian era.
Action Stations features a unique series of physical challenges, simulators and technological experiments, which put visitors at the heart of the modern naval experience.
At Action Stations visitors can reach dizzy heights when they attempt to scale the tallest indoor climbing tower in the UK. Soaring to a height of 8.4 metres (over 27 feet), a built-in LCD timer and differing degrees of difficulty are available, assess your own speed and agility, as well as compete against friends and family.
Action Stations has worked closely with the UK’s number 1 laser tag brand to create an exhilarating experience for players aged 6+. Set over 2 floors which represent the bridge of a hijacked container ship and a pirate stronghold, Laser Quest provides challenges inspired by the Royal Navy and Royal Marines, with lighting effects, billowing smoke and a heart-pounding atmosphere (additional charge applies).
Sky Tykes is a rope course with little ones in mind, designed specifically for children ranging in age from 2-7 years old (Max height 48” / 122cm). The Sky Tykes course puts agility to the test with rope bridges and balance beams, and has no set route or time limit - you're limited only by your imagination.
Take your seats for Command Approved, our state of the art large-screen film and projection technology bring you 25 minutes of heart-pumping action fit for James Bond himself, as the fictional HMS Monarch combats gold bullion pirates in the South Seas. This is the Royal Navy at its best in an action-packed drama combining excitement, danger and intrigue. Command Approved was specially made on location in the Bahamas aboard HMS Montrose and HMS Marlborough, two of the Royal Navy’s Type 23 frigates. This film is shown twice a day at 11.30am and 3.30pm.
