Your birthday party or meeting at the MAS pavilion?




During this ultra captivating and, above all, instructive game, children are introduced to all kinds of maritime aspects. For example, they are transformed into captains, chief engineers or sailors and find out whether they have real sea legs. They are given various assignments they have to complete. Assemble a propeller blindly, fill a container, learn how to do knots and save the man overboard.

‘Areyouwaterproof’ takes approximately 2 hours and is free or charge. Reservations are necessary.
