New 4-D Attraction Coming To Coney Island

The New York Aquarium is proud to announce their new attraction, "Planet Earth: Shallow Seas™ 4-D Experience", at the aquarium.

Opening on March 21, this epic 4-D adventure gives guests the opportunity to hear the power of the ocean's waves as they crash along the shoreline. “Adventurers” will feel the salty spray as they surf the coast with Atlantic bottlenose dolphins in search of food, while gliding alongside a cast of balletic sea lions as they dive through vast swirling bait balls of anchovy. Meanwhile, aquarium-goers can track a mother humpback whale and her calf as they navigate from their tropical nursery to the Arctic Circle. And, participants will be able to experience the greatest gathering of seabirds and whales ever captured in Digital HD.

The New York Aquarium’s 4D Immersion Theater combines the visual drama of a 3D film with a variety of sensory effects, which are built into theater seats and the theater environment. The theater experience virtually brings 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. Admission is $6 per person ($4 for members).

Sense the pressure, feel the perils and smell the triumph celebrating the Earth as never before in Planet Earth: Shallow Seas™ 4-D Experience.
