Are you ready, Kids? Spongebob Squarepants is in the house!
Vancouver, B.C. – SpongeBob SquarePants 4-D The Great Jelly Rescue will hit the sand running Sept. 6th in the Goldcorp 4-D Theatre at the Vancouver Aquarium.
This zany adventure sees the ever-popular sea sponge and his friends, starfish Patrick and Texas squirrel Sandy, setting out to save the Jellyfish of Jellyfish Fields from the nefarious copepod, Sheldon J. Plankton.
Naturally, things don’t go according to plan. There’s plenty of chaos as SpongeBob and friends tear around the underwater city of Bikini Bottom and enrage the green pirate ghost called The Flying Dutchman as they strive for a jelly-friendly ending.
Along the way, spectators of all ages will enjoy both 3-D visuals and the 4th dimension—delightfully unexpected physical effects, like the chair-rattling rumble of cannons, the delightful sight of bubbles dancing across the theatre, nose-tickling scents, and more.
Created by marine biologist and animator Stephen Hillenberg, SpongeBob SquarePants is an Emmy Award-winning, top-rated Nickelodeon TV series that dates back to 1999 and spawned a feature-length movie. The film takes you on a sensory journey and is suitable for children aged four and up.
The Vancouver Aquarium’s Goldcorp 4-D Theatre takes guests on a unique and exhilarating adventure with larger-than-life images, surround sound, customized smells, and a variety of touch technologies. This sensory adventure makes the audience feel like it’s part of the unfolding drama, whether in a whimsical animated adventure like SpongeBob SquarePants 4-D The Great Jelly Rescue or a more scientific exploration of our natural world.
For more accurate representations of sea sponges, starfish and jellies, though not Texas squirrels, be sure to explore the Wet Lab and touch pools at the Vancouver Aquarium.
SpongeBob SquarePants 4-D The Great Jelly Rescue will be showcased throughout the day in The Goldcorp 4-D Theatre until November 27. The 4-D theatre experience is included with the price of admission to the Aquarium. Please find a full schedule of programs and shows here.
