REVIEW: Finding Dory and Friends: The Experience

16 January 2018

Just in time for school holidays, the new exhibit at Sea Life, Sunshine Coast is now open… and it’s perfectly designed with little ones in mind.

Created with Disney•Pixar, the new experience features interactive magical moments from the box-office smash hit, Finding Dory.

“We are extremely excited to open this new and interactive, state of the art exhibit - a first for the Sunshine Coast!” said Quinn Clarke, Sea Life Sunshine Coast’s Regional General Manager.

“Aussies love Dory and we’re excited to launch the immersive experience in time for summer. The new zone will allow visitors to actively participate in Dory’s journey as they adventure across the ocean and learn all about the amazing underwater world.”

Throughout the interactive journey at Sea Life Sunshine Coast, a Pipe Pals trail will guide and surprise with tales of amazing underwater animals, leading guests into Dory’s Reef.

Experience fun activities including, Ridin’ the EAC with Crush, Nemo’s Anemone Challenge, and using your own echo locator in Bailey’s Maze.

You can then challenge friends and family to see who can reach immunity the quickest in Nemo’s Anemone Race! Racing through the anemone and building resistance, just like clownfish in the wild.

Bailey’s Echo Locator is next, where guests can help their friends journey through the maze by encouraging them through a fun network of communication pipes.

The highlight of Finding Dory and Friends: The Experience is meeting schools of Blue Tangs (Dory) and Clownfish (Nemo) in an all-new stunning Coral Reef exhibit.

Every interactive experience is designed to educate visitors about Dory and her friends and how we can help preserve reefs and coastlines for the future.

With stacks to keep the little ones entertained, Finding Dory and Friends: The Experience is open from Friday 17th November and will be open every day of the Summer school holidays (excluding Christmas Day).
