Housed in the location of the former manatee encounter, TurtleTrek offers several underwater viewing rooms, starting with a large aquarium featuring the majestic manatee. In the second underwater viewing room, guests get an up-close view of the turtles. A rescue team member introduces us to a green sea turtle named Nyah, and we learn that in Turtle Trek we will experience the world through her eyes.

The 360-degree dome provides a fantastic view from wherever you stand in the theater, and you actually feel as if you’re seeing the world through Nyah’s eyes. You follow her journey from a hatchling, making her way out of the sand and into the ocean. You travel to the ocean’s depths as well as to the water’s surface. Along the way, you encounter other sea creatures, including jellyfish, dolphins and a fishing boat with its nets. The immersive experience means that you experience the same sights and sounds as Nyah does!

Children and adults will both love this experience, but parents should know a few of the sea creatures are truly larger-than-life (remember, you’re seeing them from Nyah’s perspective) and may scare young children.
