Landry's, Inc. announced the addition of an immersive 5D theater experience across from the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier. Recently opened, the new Shark Attack and Mysterious Underworld 5D attractions offer exhilarating, multi-sensory experiences with the latest technology available in the industry.
The Pleasure Pier's 5D theater features a comfortable environment, displaying high-definition 3D projection combined with added physical effects. Shark Attack incorporates a motion platform, while Mysterious Underworld has 15 seats, and both are specially equipped for spectators to feel the action of the movie plots. Featuring vibrations, movements and spatial music, guests will experience a wide-range of sensory stimulants, adding another dimension to the viewing experience. Designed by Matrix Technology, other effects include simulated rain, wind and smells.
Audiences will freeze in their shoes as they stand and watch a ravenous shark try to break through the Aquarium glass in Shark Attack, all the while getting splashed as the shark escalates into a state of fury. During the virtual 8-minute adventure Mysterious Underworld ride, guests' seats will swing and sway, simulating a heart-racing ride in a trolley through a forgotten mine.
The one-of-a-kind 5D ride complements the experiences already available at Pleasure Pier, offering guests a chance to cool down and be entertained by innovative technology, said Keith Beitler, Senior VP and COO, Specialty Restaurant and Theme Park Divisions.
It's evident that Landry's is invested in the Galveston community by our commitment to continually bring family-oriented attractions to the island.
Located next to Chick-fil-A on Seawall Boulevard at 25th street, the 5D theater is easily accessible to island visitors and residents. Tickets are available for purchase in person at the Pleasure Pier ticket booth and the 5D theater ticket office. Tickets will be $7 per person for Shark Attack, $7 per person for Mysterious Underworld and $12 per person for a combination 5D ride ticket. A Pleasure Pier All Day Ride Pass and 5D theatre combination ticket is also be available for $36.99 for those over 48" tall and 29.99 for those 36-48".
