You are invited on an extraordinary 4D adventure this holiday season on THE POLAR EXPRESS! When a doubting young boy takes an extraordinary train ride to the North Pole, he embarks on a journey of self-discovery that shows him that the wonder of life never fades for those who believe. THE POLAR EXPRESS 4D Experience is based on the inspiring and beloved Caldecott Medal children’s book by Chris Van Allsburg.

Featured in digital 3D and brought to life with 4D multi-sensory effects, this is an immersive experience for the whole family to enjoy.

Explore her breathtaking world—brought to you in photorealistic animation and stunning 4-D effects – as she and her fellow ferocious underwater creatures swim and slink their way through life while trying to escape their predators and win the epic fight for survival.

What Is 4-D?

The Aquarium's 4-D Immersion Theater is equipped with 4-D capabilities, which combine the high-definition drama of a 3-D film with special sensory effects that are built into the theater seats and environment.

Films are transformed into 15-minute experiences that bring on-screen images virtually to life with special effects, such as mist, wind, snow, bubbles, leg ticklers, scents, enhanced lighting and seat vibrations!

Please note: The 4-D Immersion Films contain theatrical lighting, including strobe lights. Please use discretion if your child is easily startled, or if you have medical conditions related to your back. An assistive listening system is available; please ask a theater attendant for a headset prior to seating.

Members can purchase 4-D tickets at the member entrance.
