Sink your teeth into an amazing ‘out of water’ shark experience!
Whether sharks fill you with fear or fascination, Planet Shark: Predator or Prey will have you hooked from start to finish. Leave the outside world behind as you dive into the incredible underwater world of sharks – without even getting your feet wet. Trace millions of years of evolution, come face-to-face with the great white shark, learn the true impact of the shark fin trade and gain a whole new level of respect for the ocean’s oldest and most effective predator.
Produced on a size and scale never seen before, Planet Shark: Predator or Prey includes awe-inspiring shark models cast from real animals, an extraordinary collection of real teeth and jaws, and extremely old and rare fossils – some up to 370 million years old. Cutting-edge SENSORY4™ technology provides a walkthrough, multi-sensory cinematic experience that will leave you deeply immersed in the story of this magnificent yet sadly misunderstood animal.
This ground-breaking exhibition could not have come at a better time. Years of fishing pressure and media misrepresentation have pushed the shark to the brink of extinction. Their last hope lies with public education and awareness – and the launch of Planet Shark: Predator or Prey is the vital first step. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity for young and old alike.
