Sea Monsters 4-D: A Prehistoric Adventure

82 million years ago may be known to many as the Age of Dinosaurs, but while they roamed the land, a whole other world of beasts existed in the submerged world. Go back in time to join one of these incredible sea monsters on her journey from the safety of life in the shallows to the center of the action in the most dangerous seas in history. 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.
