You are invited to hop aboard The Polar Express as we celebrate its 10th anniversary with a 20 minute cinematic 4-D adventure complete with the rumble of the train, falling of magical snow and heavenly scent of hot chocolate.
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 Alsburg.
Aquarium show schedules change on a daily basis. Please check with us before planning your visit around any individual show.
Our 4-D shows are accessible for all audiences and include:
wheelchair access entry
4 wheelchair spots
Printed scripts of 4-D shows upon request
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.
