The Hercules is our brand new 1km assault course that is fun for the whole family. There will be 18 obstacles for you to tackle including rope swings, ninja walls, monkey bars and cargo nets. It’s a race against the clock! You can compete against members of your family or your friends, but why not compete in groups to see which team is the best. Up to 6 people can take part at any one time and there will be a leader board displaying your scores at the finish line. The course is open every day at 10.30am and the last chance to take part is at 4.00pm. See below for how to book your ticket and the information you need to get ready for take-off! At the start line you will be briefed on how to complete the course. The Ground Crew will then start the count down and then it is time for take-off! Navigators will be stationed around the course to help you steer round, and to make sure each obstacle is ready for you to tackle. Located out on our ‘airfield’ at the RAF Museum London, the start and finish line are next to each other. You will need to loop around and then cross the finish line next to where you started. There is a refreshment stand, photo booth and the all-important leader board at the end. You can take your triumphant selfie with your final score, then relax and purchase a nice cold drink.
