This June, the National Aquarium will present Dora & Diego’s 4-D Adventure, a new family friendly theatrical film and attraction based on Nickelodeon’s hit animated preschool series Dora the Explorer and Go, Diego, Go!. For the first time ever, families can see these popular characters animated in digital 3-D, with special effects that make the story burst off the screen. To kick off the new film, a Diego costumed character will make a special appearance at the Aquarium on June 26 and 27.
In Dora & Diego’s 4-D Adventure, visitors will join Dora, Diego and Boots as they travel from the tropical rain forest to the icy Arctic in a high-speed chase to protect the world’s animals from Swiper’s newest invention—a Robot Butterfly! The National Aquarium’s 4-D theater combines the visual drama of a 3-D film with a variety of sensory effects that are built into the seats and theater environment, bringing on-screen images to life with added effects such as water mist, a neck air blast, snow, bubbles, leg ticklers, scents, enhanced floor lighting, and seat vibrations.
The 4-D Theater is included in the Total Experience Package, giving visitors another option to enhance their Aquarium experience. Single tickets are also available for purchase onsite. The film will play in rotation with Planet Earth: From Pole to Pole which appeals to an older audience. Click here to find more details and show times.
