We had a blast training to be agents of Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. at ExCel London recently, though according to my 9 year old, I was embarrassingly bad at everything. THAT’S MY ACTUAL JOB, KID!
Marvel’s Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. has now opened to the public – with a huge collection of Avengers movie-based props and interactive technology.

S.T.A.T.I.O.N. is an acronym for Science Training and Tactical Intelligence Operative Network.
I took my eldest son and we experienced simulated flight and fighting in Iron Man’s suit, tried and failed to lift Thor’s hammer, and trained to be agents of the S.T.A.T.I.O.N. (I left my 6 year old at home – he’s not really into superheroes and there’s quite a lot to read on the wall displays.)

Andrew Richards says
A complete and utter waste of money and a rip off. Somebody is making a fortune by exploiting “Marvel” and “Avengers”. Do something better with your money such as burying it in the garden or by giving it to charity. Situated in a series of outbuildings that aren’t even part of the main Excel complex – and completed withing 35 minutes. Its amazing how you can describe a load of TV’s, lights, costumes and iPods as an interactive exhibition. Avoid like the plague.
It took us a lot longer than 35 minutes
