2) 4-D Theater: In May, the Zoo's brand new 4-D Theater opened for a movie experience like no other. Watch an eight-minute film while experiencing all the sensations that come along with the scenery. Sniff, feel and hear all of the adventure going on before your eyes on the giant screen. After the movie, head to the Shores Splash Park to interact with giant sea creatures.
