What Is 4D?

The Aquarium's 4D Immersion Theater is equipped with 4D capabilities, which combine the high-definition drama of a 3D 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 4D 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.
