Elf and Safety

Science Theatre

Join the Elf and Safety team as we show you the very latest in elf technology to help prepare Santa for what will be his busiest Christmas yet.

As if jetting around the entire world in just one night wasn’t enough to expect, it turns out that the number of children who need a visit this year is higher than ever. If we don’t take some drastic action, we could have the world’s worst delivery crisis on our hands!

Now, it’s down to the elves to come up with new clever ideas to help meet this challenge. But wait… some of those inventions look a bit odd to us, are they sure they’re safe? And what exactly has happened to Santa’s beard?!

Bring in the Elf and Safety team.

We’re going to need all your help to test out their plans to save Christmas this year — will you join us?

    We are pleased to be able to offer all of our visitors discounted parking with Q-Park, our preferred parking partner.

    The Q-Park operates the Cardiff Bay car park in Pierhead Street which is around 8 minutes walk from Techniquest.

    We regret that there is no parking on-site at Techniquest.
