The Comet Chaser

Will YOU save the Earth from potential annihilation? Play The Comet Chaser in Ireland’s first interactive cinema designed especially for visitors to Blackrock Castle. Entry is included with your admission ticket to the Castle.

In this cinematic gaming experience, you make decisions that directly influence the design of a vital space mission to divert a comet on a crash course to collide with Earth. Using scientific principles to make critical decisions along the way, players in The Comet Chaser determine the outcome of the game. Will you be able to avert disaster?!

Set at Blackrock Castle, help is given along the way by a cast of real scientists and researchers from the European Space Agency, including ESA Flight Director Mike McKay.  The interactive consoles, cinema-sized screen and Teflon covered cinema seats are among the many innovative details in this unique learning adventure.

Comet Chaser Fans

The Comet Chaser is a game that I’ve never seen before… The interactive presentations on the screens are amazing. F A N T A S T I C!Trip Advisor

An engaging as well as educational game scenario that is on a par with anything Disney could do. It has entertained family members from 7 to 17 and made them go back again for another go. “Just like being IN the movies!” Trip Advisor
