What's On

Coventry Transport Museum holds a wide range of events and activities throughout the year, so there's always something new to see and do.

Last Weekend of the ThrustSSC Simulator

Download Event to Calendar

This weekend - 18th & 19th October is your last chance to ride the now legendary ThrustSSC Simulator in our Spirit of Speed Gallery.

After 10 years of taking our visitors to the dizzy G-Forces of the supersonic speed of 763mph, the world land speed record breaking speed of Thrust SSC, our simulator is being stood down for a well earned rest.

But don't despair, a brand new 4D Simulator is coming along with our stunning new Land Speed Record Gallery in April 2015.

So don't miss out and be part of history by riding our Thrust SSC Simulator this weekend....for the last time.

Tickets are £1.50 and you can go supersonic from 10am, this Saturday and Sunday....hold on to your hat!
