“Shark Attack: The Mysterious Underworld 5D”

At the very hard-to-miss giant head of a shark jutting out of the building across from Pleasure Pier at 2424 Seawall Blvd., is the thrilling “Shark Attack The Mysterious Underworld 5D” and “The Mysterious Underworld 5D” rides.

Are you ready to test your bravery on this ferocious “Shark Attack” ride? Prepare yourself – you’re about to be witness to a jaw-dropping prehistoric Megalodon shark! One of the largest and most powerful predators that ever lived is back. “Shark Attack: The Mysterious Underworld 5D” offers visitors a chance to watch as a massive, angry shark attempts to break through what appears to be aquarium glass.

The second attraction is a simulated ride on a mine car into “The Mysterious Underworld” where you can take an exhilarating ride through a dark, forgotten mine. Sitting in a mine car, your seats will swing, sway, and drop as you take this heart-racing ride. Effects include realistic movement in all directions, water, wind, scents, smoke, and fog.

Combo tickets for both rides are $12. A Pleasure Pier combo ticket for $36.99 / $29.99 (based on height) includes an All Day Ride pass and both 5D rides.
