 Join this wild 4-D adventure as the Pacific salmon endures its annual struggle to journey upstream on the west coast of North America. The Great Salmon Run is based on one of nature’s most amazing events as hundreds of millions of Pacific salmon return to the mountain streams in which they were born. Their passage is fraught with danger – from raging rapids and waterfalls to hungry grizzly bears. Other predators join the feast, including orcas, Steller sea lions, salmon sharks and the bald eagle. Presented in high definition 3-D plus in-theater special effects, this captivating 12-minute show provides insight into the forces of nature, which drive a chain reaction culminating in a spectacular wildlife event. For some animals, it’s a window of opportunity, but for others, it’s the most dangerous time of their lives.
