Visit the Wild Adventure Zone during Wild Lights
Go on an extraordinary adventure in the Wild Adventure Zone with “The Polar Express 4-D Experience” at the 4-D Theater. The 20-minute film features the tale of a doubting young boy who takes a train ride to the North Pole and discovers that the wonder of life never fades for those who believe.
Also showing in the Wild Adventure Zone is “Happy Feet: Mumble’s Wild Ride” at the Simulator Ride. Mumble and his penguin friends race down the frozen cliffs of Antarctica at chilling speeds, and their icy journey turns into a suspenseful chase as they come face to face with the infamous Leopard Seal.
Tickets for each experience are $5 with Wild Lights admission or a “Bundle Up” price of $7 for both; children under 2 are free.
