Thanks to Peter MacDonald for the following images.
We put nearly 200 kids through the have a go range and did a live shoot on the main range each day. Its actually really hard to fire a catapult that throws 1kg stones in an area that small so they were powered right down. I fired them from largest to smallest and pointed out the relative power Chucky – which threw a tennis ball with a lot of hang time and distance – to Vespasian and let people work out for themselves what woudl happen if I cranked up Vespasian.
The crowd was estimated at 8,000 – 10,000 and many people said they had a lot of trouble getting to the park on Sunday because of the traffic. Many families stayed then entire day because there was always somethign happening on the main area from archery to world class jousting. None of the kids got bored and it was a great day out for all.
