Aviodrome For Kids
The Aviodrome is always exciting! At the start you will step into a real time machine! You enter in a big machine, which looks curiously like an elevator. It is dark. Then the show begins! You will see aviation history flying by, complete with sounds and motion!
There is also a children's corner where the little ones can play and fold paper aeroplanes. You can take one of the discovery tours when you enter the museum, and successful explorers are rewarded with a super Aviodrome souvenir!
When you leave the time machine, you can begin your journey of exploration. You will find answers to many things you might want to know about aviation. For instance how it is possible that a plane lifts off and flies at extreme altitudes and speeds. You may have wondered how flying used to be in the past. A replica of the cabin of a plane from the 1933 has been recreated to let you experience just that! If you want to know how airports worked in the past, you're in for a real treat! The Schiphol terminal building from the late 1920s has been completely recreated.
In the flight laboratory you can test how wings work. You can place various wing forms in a wind tunnel. This will clearly illustrate how planes fly and turn.
Somewhere on the park, if you look really carefully, you will find a wooden plane that once crash landed at the Aviodrome. Once you finished climbing in and on it, there's another big plane, an Antonov AN-2, you can climb in! Heck, you might as well sit on the captain's chair while you're there! You may not be flying for real, but that does not stop you from fiddling with the controls!
Once you're done flying the An-2 to warmer places, you are invited to experience the full motion flight simulator. Get some real G forces! Hopefully your stomach can take it!
During some days in the school holidays there is also a bouncy castle. Please call +31 (0)900-AVIODROME (+31 900 2846376) for more information (25 ct/min).
