Si5 Spy Missions: I spy with my little eye an awesome adventure!


Like a lot of other boys his age my seven year old son spends most of his spare time shooting and fighting imaginary ‘baddies’, as he calls them, and practicing his commando rolls around the house. So it doesn’t come as much of a surprise that when I ask him what he wants to be when he grows up it’s a tough choice between becoming a ninja or a spy. And when I told him he had the real life opportunity to become a special agent as part of his friend’s 7th birthday party he literally jumped at the chance.

Si5 Spy Mission

Agent H reporting for duty – Si5 Spy Mission

On a cold winter’s afternoon my own little hero joined eleven of his school friends at Si5 Spy Missions, one of Nottingham’s newest visitor attractions. There they discovered that they were about to join the Shadow Force an elite team of agents who needed to board the UNS battle cruiser Steadfast and defeat the evil Agent Malice.

The group was divided into the green and orange team and each provided with a special agent guide to assist them with their mission.  Over the next hour they faced a series of challenges including cracking codes, solving puzzles and dodging cameras and deadly laser beams as they worked their way through the ship to find and disarm a series of time bombs.

Thankfully they managed to escape from the ship unharmed and emerged absolutely buzzing from their adrenaline filled experience which my son described as “Dark, cool and awesome!”. So on this mission the baddies were well and truly defeated but I’m sure we’ll be back soon as a family to save the world from Agent Malice and his men but for now mission complete, over and out.

Speak In Nottingham To Me – A Beginner’s Guide To Nottingham’s Dialect

Several attempts were made to popularise different languages…
