It's Time to Learn How to Survive!

Do you know how to fend off a shark? Survive a riptide? Escape a sinking car or killer bees?

Test your limits in Worst-Case Scenario: Survival Experience - a traveling exhibition opening at Imagination Station on February 11, 2022.

Based on the internationally best-selling Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook Series, Worst-Case Scenario: Survival Experience is a hands-on, minds-on series of immersive challenges providing the essential instructions for surviving unexpected but possible real-life scenarios. From defusing a bomb to delivering a baby in the back of a cab, landing a plane to escaping from zombies, The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Experience will help you get through and have you laughing along the way.

This exhibition is aspirational, educational and hilarious.

Worst-Case Scenario Survival Experience provides practical situational exercises that utilize many of the skills that are acquired through tinkering and making, encouraging exploration and discovery.

“It’s really a safe and playful way to activate the book and unleash your inner survival expert and your inner action hero.” —co-author David Borgenicht
