Interact with Bio-luminescence
An interactive lightshow showcases the rare phenomenon of bio-luminescence. Walk through the waves and the bioluminescence will splash under your feet in this motion-sense display that leaves the young and the young-at-heart amazed and wanting to splash through it again and again!
See the Giant Wave
At the end of the experience, look back at the heart of the reef and all of its creatures, through a giant frozen wave feature. This is the perfect backdrop for guests to capture the ultimate family snap or selfie.
