ATLANTA (MARCH 17, 2016) – Georgia Aquarium’s 4D theater has reopened to the public after receiving extensive renovations over the past few months. The theater, renamed “The 4D Funbelieveable Theater,” has received state-of-the-art upgrades to enhance the gallery and guest experience. This is the first time the theater has received upgrades since opening in 2005.

The 4D Funbelievable Theater is one on the most advanced theaters in the world. Upgrades that were made include brand new interactive seats, a state-of-the-art sound system, unique special effects that are built into the theater itself. First time ever the theater features scent and snow effects. By creating a set of "4D" effects that are synchronized to the film production, the 4D Theater adds another layer of immersive fun for audiences.

“We are excited for guests to experience the renovated theater and its state-of-the-art equipment upgrades. The most exciting thing is being able to provide guests with a wide-variety of shows. Four shows will be offered to guests throughout the year, providing them with different experience in the theater each time they visit and see a new show. We are also looking forward to incorporating an interactive pre-show element, which will be fun and engaging for guests of all ages,” said Josh Ford, director of entertainment at Georgia Aquarium.

The 4D Funbelievable Theater is now screening an adapted version of “Happy Feet.” The previous show, “Deepo’s Undersea Wondershow,” will now be shown in Deepo’s Hideaway, located in the Ocean Voyager Built by The Home Depot gallery.

The 4D Theater holds up to 240 guests per show, with multiple shows per day. Admission to the theater is complimentary with Georgia Aquarium general admission. Show times are listed outside the theater and available at the Aquarium’s information desk. Advance reservation is not required for admission and entrance is granted on a first come-first served basis.
