and his Bikini Bottom friends from the Nickelodeon hit animated series SpongeBob
SquarePants. Activities will include costumed character appearances, free showings of
the new 4D film, SpongeBob SquarePants 4D: The Great Jelly Rescue!, and an
opportunity to meet the real-life sea creatures in the Aquarium’s exhibits.

From 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., SpongeBob and his starfish

from the Nickelodeon animated series.

SpongeBob, Patrick, and Sandy on a wild 4D adventure to rescue the jellyfish of Jellyfish
Fields from Plankton’s evil clutches. With stunning 3-D graphics and a dramatic
assortment of scents and sounds, viewers will surf through the electrifying swarm of
jellies, get dragged into the bowels of the Flying Dutchman’s ghost ship, and even feel
the rumble of a cannon. The theatre experience is a partnership between Nickelodeon,
SimEx-Iwerks Entertainment, and Super 78 Studios.

Additional themed activities will continue exclusively for Aquarium members, including
music, special giveaways, and more from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
