AquariumThe Polar Express 4-D Experience

November 13 – January 3

You are invited 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 multi-sensory effects, this is an immersive experience for the whole family to enjoy.
