Take to the air!

3rd September 2017

To celebrate Thunderbirds Day we’ve partnered with TFL and Intercontinental London – The 02, to bring you two very special events!

This September Thunderbirds Are Go will takeover TFL’s iconic Emirates Air Line cable car in east London.

The activity will run from Friday 22nd September to Sunday 29th October offering families and visitors the chance to travel through the Tracy Island themed cable car terminal featuring large models of Thunderbird 1 and Thunderbird 2, and take off in one of the themed cabins amidst the palm trees to the iconic 5-4- 3-2- 1 countdown.  The cable car terminals and all the cabins will be fitted with plenty of selfie opportunities for all the family to enjoy. On Thunderbirds Day (30th September) and in the October half term visitors will also get the chance to meet Virgil, one of the stars of the show, and have the opportunity to bag one of the exclusive giveaways and mementoes.

Emirates Air Line family tickets will be available at the discounted price of £27.50 for two adults

and up to three kids. For more information visit https://tfl.gov.uk/thunderbirds-are-go

And there’s more! InterContinental London – The O2, will be hosting a Lady Penelope-themed Afternoon Tea.

Visitors will be able to relax in the stylish and decadent surroundings of the Meridian Lounge as they sample delicious themed treats fit for International Rescue’s most stylish field agent including Tracy island coconut pineapple verrine, FAB 1 pink bonbon torte and Lady Penelope macarons. A specially created Lady Penelope cocktail will also be on offer providing the perfect finishing touch to a decadent afternoon. The event will also be attended by the Lady Penelope and Parker puppets themselves, as seen on TV

recently in the Halifax Savers Are Go adverts. The Meridian Lounge will display bespoke prints from cult pop art studio Art & Hue.

Guests will receive a welcome card with a special message from her Ladyship, signed by Rosamund Pike as Lady Penelope, her role in  Thunderbirds Are Go.
