This pavilion was just recently upgraded and is now more magnificent than ever. Guests start their journey aboard clammobiles and travel underwater through the world of Finding Nemo. Unfortunately, Nemo has gone missing again and riders follow Marlin on his search for his missing son. On your journey you encounter jellyfish, visit with sharks, escape a vicious anglerfish and surf down the East Australian Current (or EAC). The ride culminates in a great finale that actually features some of the Nemo characters swimming inside the giant aquarium with real marinelife. Upon exiting the clam, guests have the option of visiting a number of interesting exhibits. There’s a manatee tank with a herd of rescued manatees. Bruce’s Lair features hands-on activities dedicated to educating guests about sharks, as well as letting them meet the shark gang from Finding Nemo. The main aquarium is one of the world’s largest and contains schools of tropical fish, sharks and even dolphins.
One of the highlights inside the pavilion is Turtle Talk with Crush, a show that lets guests ask the famous star from Finding Nemo any question they have about turtles. This show uses amazing technology which enables the audience to speak one-on-one with the animated character.
There is no height requirement for this ride.
When to Visit
Due to its high capacity, this attraction rarely gets extremely long lines. However, it’s still not advisable to visit between 12pm and 3pm to avoid the longest lines.
