During the second half of 1908, two new giant slipways were built and the enormous Arrol Gantry was erected to prepare for the construction of Titanic and Olympic, the largest ships in the world.
Visitors must ascend a replica of one of the huge pillars of the Arrol Gantry to embark on the Shipyard Ride – an electronic dark ride that uses special effects, animations and full-scale reconstructions to recreate the reality of shipbuilding in the early 1900s.
On disembarking the Shipyard Ride, visitors enter Gallery Three: The Launch of Titanic
