The immersive experience is based on the Disney/Pixar films Finding Nemo and Finding Dory. Thea describes the attraction as “beautifully executed and subtly transformed.” They go on to say that “Even without 3D glasses or a complex theatre, the team found the perfect balance of elements to make this a charming and exciting ride for the whole family.”

With their reliable expertise and in-house testing capabilities with the Jenoptik Dome Theatre, Jenoptik is the go-to partner to provide customers with the highest quality projection optics for wide-angle projection units for soaring rides, 3D movie theatres, dark rides and simulators.
