Bigger and more explosive than ever, The Hollywood Special Effects Show blasts into Lincolnshire this weekend.

The interactive science and special effects family show, is back on tour and this dangerously explosive school holiday treat is coming to The Baths Hall in Scunthorpe on Saturday, July 30 and Sunday, July 31.

Audiences will be able to get closer to the action than ever before as the show goes behind the scenes of many favourite blockbuster films to discover the science and secrets of creating movie magic.

Live on stage, the show’s team will give a revealing insight into the world of special effects, taking families on an exciting journey as they feel the heat of an onstage inferno, marvel at gruesome sci-fi monsters, are blown away by apocalyptic weather and hold on tight through huge explosions.

The show uses more pyrotechnics than any other UK touring theatre show.

And for some sequences, the audience is protected by bullet proof glass placed across the stage.

The animatronic dinosaur that appears in the show was built by specialists in Japan, and the large air cannon used in the finale of the show is capable of firing a projectile over a distance of 500 metres.

The show was selected as one of two productions to appear at this year’s Big Bang Fair, the largest science fair in the UK, which was visited by more than 70,000 people in four days.

Performances at the Baths Hall are at 7pm on Saturday, July 30 and 2pm and 6pm on Sunday, July 31.

Standard tickets are £12.50 while ‘danger zone’ tickets are £14.

School tickets and group bookings are £10 each.
