The interactive touch pads aren’t the only feature that utilizes technology within Deep Sea Adventure. Before guests board the 22,000 pound submarines, they are given a briefing on the mission that awaits them by a 3-foot-tall LEGO diver whose face, with the help of a projector screen, is animated as he gives instructions to the explorers. As guests exit the ride, they enter the retail space where they can build their own virtual fish from LEGO and “release” it into the virtual ocean. If they’d like to build their own LEGO fish at home, all of the LEGO elements are available for purchase.
During the ride, a narrator will talk about the different animals and tell you facts about each animal. At one point in the ride you will enter the very bottom of the sea in the volcanic sea bed. the colors will change from blue to red and kids can spot a lot of sunken treasure.
