Welcome to The James Sadler Oxford Balloon Experience, Interactive Science and Visitor’s Centre. A World class attraction to commemorate Oxford born James Sadler, a working-class hero who made history in 1784 by becoming the first Englishman to fly, as well as many other remarkable achievements.
His story will fascinate and inspire children of all ages. Their plan is to set up an interactive science and information centre where education is the key.
Interactive scientific concepts will be designed with children in mind.This amazing educational attraction will be available for everyone to visit and experience the joys of learning, culminating in a tethered balloon flight above the dreaming spires, soaring as Sadler did 120 meters above Oxford’s unique skyline.
The James Sadler Experience will not just be a fantastical flight above Oxford but also a preflight briefing including interactives, simulators, augmented/virtual reality and filmic treatments that bring James Sadler to life – in a truly “world class” attraction that Oxford has longed for.
This would be a perfect family attraction with something for everyone to enjoy and participate in whilst learning about James Sadler’s extraordinary achievements and Oxford itself.
We are currently searching for a suitable site for our project in Oxford City and would be pleased to hear from parties who are interested in becoming involved.
