New Exhibit Coming To Clearwater Aquarium
New whale exhibit debuts at Clearwater Marine Aquarium with a VR diving experience
The Clearwater Marine Aquarium has debuted a brand new 20,000 square foot exhibit entitled Whales: Living with Giants, and it is sure to amaze aquarium visitors of all ages!
The exhibit is intended to educate visitors on the world of whales through the use of multi-media exhibits, a walk through life-size whale gallery, areas intended for children, and an insanely cool virtual reality experience!
For the VR experience, Clearwater Marine Aquarium is partnering with award-winning virtual reality entertainment group Immotion to bring a fully-immersive VR theatre complete with state-of-the-art motion-platform seating technology.
The VR experience will immerse viewers in the deep sea as marine biologists as they "swim" alongside whales and other marine life! Luckily, the VR experience is not an upcharge and admission is included with all tickets to the aquarium.
