Sea Monster’s Journey Comes to Life at National Aquarium

Sea Monster’s Journey Comes to Life at National Aquarium 

4-D Immersion Theater chronicles sea monster’s life below the sea

(Baltimore) – Guests of the National Aquarium can travel back in time and follow an incredible sea monster on her journey to survive in one of the most dangerous seas in history this fall with Sea Monsters 4-D: A Prehistoric Adventure attraction, coming to the Aquarium’s 4-D Immersion Theater on October 17, 2014.

Eighty-two million years ago when dinosaurs ruled the land, a whole other world of beasts existed below the water. Moviegoers will explore the sea monster’s breathtaking world as she and her fellow ferocious underwater creatures swim and slink their way through life while trying to escape their predators.

With photorealistic animation and stunning 4-D effects (combining the high-definition drama of a 3-D film with special sensory effects that are built into the theater seats and environment), guests will dive into the ocean and speed away from predators in this epic fight for survival.
