Polar Express: The 4D Experience

Starts November 26, 2015

Go on an extraordinary 4-D 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™ 4-D Experience is based on the inspiring and beloved Caldecott Medal children's book by Chris Van Allsburg.

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

Immerse Yourself In
Our 4-D Experience



With larger-than-life images that leap right out of the screen, the 4-D experience is your chance to look at marine animals in a whole new way.



Immerse yourself in a herd of plodding elephants or a flock of cawing birds, with surround sound that puts you in the middle of the action.



Catch a whiff of the scents that will further immerse you in the 4-D experience, with customized smells for various shows.



With a variety of innovative technology, the 4-D experience will give you a sense of what it’s like to swim with sea snakes…or get chomped by a shark.


Note: The 4-D Experience may not be appropriate for children under four or people with light sensitivity. Please consult a staff member if you have any concerns. Children aged 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult at all times inside the theatre and in the Aquarium galleries.
