    TurtleTrek at SeaWorld Orlando advanced in a big way this week with the completion of the dome screens. Seen above is the last piece being installed. TurtleTrek, opening this spring, is going to be the world’s first 3D, 360 domed theater experience.

    TurtleTrek is one attraction that can only come from SeaWorld, bringing guests close to sea turtles and manatees then immersing them in a sea turtle’s epic journey with the world’s first 3D, 360-degree movie in a domed theater. SeaWorld guests experience a turtle’s eye view of the ocean’s wonders and are inspired to be everyday heroes who can make a difference in nature.

    Designers married a state of the art animated film and powerful stereoscopic 3D projection system with a fully domed theater, allowing for a seamless 3D virtual environment, all around the guests, even over their heads!

    The dome itself is 32 feet tall and 64 feet in diameter, making the movie visuals massive in this space as you stand watching the turtle and other sea creatures come alive on the screens.

    It took more than five weeks for the panels to be installed because each panel was measured and cut after the previous panel was installed.

    It looks great can't wait to see on our next visit.

    I'm looking forward to seeing my husband and daughter in the dome doing their favourite scene from Finding Nemo - "fin, noggin, dude...."
