Splash and Bubbles: 4-D Undersea Adventure

The hit PBS KIDS series Splash and Bubbles comes to life in its first 4D Experience® filled with music, fun, and everyone’s favorite citizens of the sea! In this new adventure, Dunk the pufferfish loses his special lucky pebble that gives him the courage he needs to be adventurous. Upon hearing the news, his fellow Reeftown Rangers – Splash, Bubbles, and Ripple – join in the quest to find it. Together, these four friends “catch a current” to travel around the world to see wonders like the kelp forest, a whale migration, and even an active underwater volcano! They will also meet great friends like Lu the football fish, Tidy the garibaldi fish and Maury the moray eel. And of course there is no better way to end an adventure than with a party in Reeftown with their newest friend – YOU! Most importantly, Dunk learns that he doesn’t really need his lucky pebble to be a brave, adventurous explorer – he just needs his fellow Reeftown Ranger best friends! Ocean Friends Forever!

Coastal Predators

It is the greatest gathering of ocean predators on the planet. Dolphins, sharks, whales and seals converge to feast along the breathtaking South African coast for an astonishing underwater Armageddon. Each year billions of sardines are pushed into the shallows as the ocean’s most incredible animals forego natural instincts towards each other to come together for a common quest. Stunning visuals and high octane action with 4-D effects bring this great spectacle to life as you dive into this feeding frenzy of epic proportions.
