Try your hand at being a superhero
Become Iron Man or fight Captain America at new exhibition in S'pore Science Centre
Fancy going up against Captain America?
How about trying the Iron Man Simulators in which you can fight as Iron Man?
Here's is your big chance to go up against the Marvel Superheroes.
The Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N (Scientific Training and Tactical Intelligence Operative Network) exhibition opens here tomorrow.
This is its first foray into South-east Asia and the Singapore edition is touted as the biggest.
Another first for the exhibition: The costume and helmet of Loki will be on show.
The production by Victory Hill Exhibitions started in New York in 2014 and has travelled to Seoul and Paris. It has a permanent home in Las Vegas.
The Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N is a narrative-driven exhibition set within the high-tech environment of the Avengers training facility.
ON DISPLAY: Loki’s helmet.
It has original sets, props, costumes, interactive stations and special effects to draw visitors into the world of The Avengers.
Visitors join as recruits and will get to carry out detailed examination of the history, genetics, technology and personal profiles of the various Avengers team members.
After completing the various interactive segments and assessments, the recruits will graduate to active S.T.A.T.I.O.N agents.
Chief creative officer Nicholas Cooper told The New Paper: "We wanted to create something educational and give people missions to do, not to just walk through and look.
"The exhibition involves plenty of science, so it is fitting that it is being held in a science centre."
Some of the activities visitors can try include an endurance test where they pit themselves against Captain America at the High Performance Test Lab, riding a stationary bicycle.
Said Mr Cooper: "In some exhibits, we had the high performance test lab and in others we didn't.
ON DISPLAY: Captain America’s costume.
"In some exhibits, we had the Iron Man experience, the others didn't.
"So what we have done here is to bring all these things into one big show.
"Sometimes, we are restricted by space. In New York, we had only about 900 sq m, but we have almost 2,000 sq m here, so we brought everything we have to make it the biggest and best show."
In a high performance lab, visitors can pit their physical and mental skills against the superheroes.
They can also download the free Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N Mobile Training Device app, an audio guide that includes selfie photo filters of the characters.
Mr Peter Lin, a 34-year-old writer, said: "I am a huge Marvel fan and I'm looking forward to being immersed in the whole experience of being a SHIELD agent. I am buying my tickets very soon."
Since sales opened in June, more than 7,000 tickets to the exhibition have been sold.
"It is going to be an innovative, immersive and fun experience for the whole family," said Mr Cooper.
"It is very educational, it is very fun, there are a lot of things to see, do, touch and play with.
"So experience it for yourself, live in the movies for about an hour. This is the place for you."
