BONUS!

Rescue Exhibit opens the same day!

Rescue is an interactive and engaging exhibition that allows visitors to experience and learn about high-intensity rescue scenarios carried out by emergency personnel of the air, land and sea.

Developed by Scitech in Perth, Australia and produced by Imagine Exhibitions, this exhibition is designed to provide an accurate reflection of the technological tools and vital skills utilized by rescue teams in emergency situations of all kinds.

Rescue focuses heavily on visitor interaction and engagement, allowing guests to simulate participation in various rescue scenarios. Visitors are invited to not only discover how rescue technology works, but also to understand the skills and training required by rescuers assisting those in peril. In addition, activity challenges such as locating a missing person feature the importance of teamwork and training in rescue scenarios.

Incorporated graphic panels and information kiosks explain how various technological innovations have advanced difficult and dangerous rescue missions into sophisticated and successful endeavors.

Interactive exhibits include: flying a life-sized rescue helicopter simulator, experiencing what it’s like to escape from a burning building, navigating obstacles on a jet ski to rescue a swimmer in trouble, role-playing as a news team with a breaking rescue story, and more!
