Into the Deep
Board the yellow research submarine of the Nautical Exploration and Marine Observation Institute (N.E.M.O.). Sit at one of the portholes where you will be dazzled by the underwater curiosities as your submarine dives fathoms beneath the surface. Your mission is to explore a newly erupting undersea volcano!
Float past the scattered ruins of an ancient civilization that rest on the floor of a lush kelp forest, recently uncovered by the volcanic explosions. Watch deep sea divers as they search for diverse exotic fish.
Then hang on as your sub dives down further to avoid a coming sea storm.
Thanks to the “sonar hydrophones,” you can hear the fish darting about in the bubbles outside of your sub as they chatter amongst themselves. It’s Nemo and his wee turtle pal Squirt! Nemo’s dad, Marlin, isn’t far behind. Your submarine follows Marlin as he searches Nemo, passing myriad aquatic wonders including the East Australian Current, a graveyard of sunken ships and much, much more!
The Alternate Show On Shore
Film fans won’t want to miss the familiar seagulls perched on the red buoy tethered to the seafloor as they clamor, “Mine! Mine! Mine!” And for those unable to negotiate the steps down into the hatch or who simply wish to stay ashore, enter the Observation Outpost at the end of the dock. Manned by a member of the N.E.M.O. Institute, this facility offers a high-definition video version of the voyage via onboard “SubCam.”
Submarine Magical Magnets
The submarines are powered by something called Inductive Power Transfer (IPT). A magnetically coupled pair of coils transfers the power without physical contact, eliminating electrical contacts under water. One coil travels with the sub as it draws power from an electrical grid. While this kind of system has been used for other rides, this is the first time it has been used long-term under water!
