Flowers and chocolates are so 2013. Make your Valentine crazy about you with a date to Camera Obscura – or find out if they’re really the person you want to spend the day with…
How hot is your date? Find out – literally – with the thermal camera.
What will your kids look like? Decide if you never want this person’s babies by merging into each other on the Swap Heads or Face Transformers exhibits. You can also use the morph machines to find out if you’ll still fancy your date when they’re old and wrinkly.
The Vortex. Send them head over heels (almost) with the help of the Vortex Tunnel. They just might think it’s you that’s put their head in a spin.
Put stars in their eyes… with the Light Painter. Or be like love-struck teenagers, and scribble your initials together inside a heart – just to make those with a weak stomach after the Vortex even queasier.
Forget star-gazing. Stare into infinity (kind of) together.
Make him feel like the tallest man in the (Ames) room.
Get a hug. There are tons of creepy holograms and bugs under microscopes that you can pretend to be/actually be scared of, as well as the height of the rooftop.
Make like Leo and Kate with Titanic moves on the rooftop.
(No one would pose for a photo for this!!)
No likey, no lighty! Sparks will fly in the electricity room. Have your date touch the plasma dome with one hand and hold yours with the other. Put your other hand on the fluorescent tube to turn the light on.
Autowed. See if his/her intentions are true by confronting them with Autowed. For just £1, this machine will spit out a marriage certificate and two rings to bind you (not-at-all-lawfully) in marriage. If you’re already married, you can renew your vows.
Musical Stairs. Serenade your date with a tune on the stairs… or make sweet music together.
And what if it turns out to be a truly awful date? Lose them in the mirror maze!
We hope to see you here with your date this Valentine’s Day!
