Do the seats move?

Our seats, though equipped with lots of different effects, do not move.

I’m not going to be at the Zoo all day. Will I have time to visit the 4-D Theater?

Absolutely! Each experience lasts approximately 15 minutes. Our 4-D Theater is a great chance to take a seat and get out of the heat, rain, cold, or whatever else mother nature throws our way!

This process is very easy! Simply take your membership card to Membership Services, the Welcome Center, or any Rides location to see how many passes you have available. If you still have passes to be redeemed, our staff will be happy to exchange them for tickets.

Are there any special deals at the 4-D Theater?

Would you like to see experience both shows? Good news! If you purchase one experience, you get the second for half-price! This includes package tickets and member-priced tickets. See ticketing agent for details.

Do we have to be on time for our show or can we go to a different one?

Due to the popularity of our 4-D Theater, we ask that all visitors attend the showtime they are scheduled for on their ticket. Should a need arise to attend another show, please see a ticketing agent at a Rides or Admissions location as soon as possible so that they can attempt to accommodate your need. Please note: there are no refunds for missed showings.
