Planet Earth: Ice Worlds 4-D Experience ® Premieres at Texas State Aquarium

February 15, 2019

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – A BBC Earth 4D film at Texas State Aquarium will allow guests to virtually explore the mysterious frozen worlds of the Arctic and Antarctic and the effects of the ice on the animals that live there. Planet Earth: Ice Worlds 4-D Experience ®  is the latest film to be shown daily in the Aquarium’s Whataburger 4D theater, with access to screenings included with admission or membership.

The seasonal advance and retreat of the ice produces some of the greatest physical challenges experienced anywhere in the animal world–shaping the lives and survival of polar bears, emperor penguins, humpback whales and sea lions. With in-theater special effects that bring this amazing story to life, Planet Earth: Ice Worlds transports you to the Arctic Circle and Antarctica, and the danger-filled world of the animals that live there.

This 12-minute fully immersive experience will show daily every hour in the Aquarium’s Whataburger 4-Dimension Theater through Labor Day, with tickets included at no extra charge with admission or membership. Planet Earth: Ice Worlds will run daily alternating with showings of The Deep 4D: Mystery of the Ancient Amulet. 4D films at the Texas State Aquarium are included with admission or membership.

Planet Earth: Ice Worlds just over a week before the Feb. 24 debut of another frigid media experience, “Polar Obsession” a photography exhibition featuring striking images of the world’s polar regions from National Geographic photographer Paul Nicklen. The images will take visitors underwater and across the ice, delivering a unique close-up of wildlife in the Arctic and Antarctic. “Polar Obsession” will be displayed in the Texas State Aquarium’s Caribbean Sea Gallery through September 24.
