Who lives in a pineap­ple under the sea and may be com­ing soon to a theme park, zoo or aquar­ium near you? Sponge­Bob SquarePants.

Nick­elodeon is team­ing again with attrac­tion pow­er­house SimEx-Iwerks Enter­tain­ment and cre­ative stu­dio Super 78 to bring the smash hit car­toon series to life in Sponge­Bob SquarePants 4-D – The Great Jelly Res­cue. With stun­ning 3-D graph­ics and a dra­matic assort­ment of scents, sounds and phys­i­cal inter­play, the new attrac­tion will offer an immer­sive, one-of-a-kind 4-D expe­ri­ence. Pro­duc­tion of the film is cur­rently under­way, and the expe­ri­ence will debut around the world at select venues next spring.

Fans of all ages will join Sponge­Bob and his trusty pals Patrick and Sandy on a deep-sea adven­ture as they try to pre­vent their arch-enemy, Plank­ton, from har­vest­ing the ocean’s jel­ly­fish for his own evil use. The race is on as Sponge­Bob and gang encounter obsta­cles and mishaps as they try to foil Plankton’s vil­lain­ous plot.

Sponge­Bob is an inter­na­tional super­star and this excit­ing new attrac­tion gives fans the oppor­tu­nity to feel like they are part of his under­sea world,” said Super 78 prin­ci­pal Brent Young. “This expe­ri­ence shares a con­ser­va­tion mes­sage using a charm­ing sto­ry­line and spe­cial effects that engage all the senses. It even adds a fifth dimen­sion of sorts that taps the capri­cious humor Sponge­Bob is famous for.”

This is our third film part­ner­ship with Nick­elodeon,” said Mike Frueh, senior vice-president of film dis­tri­b­u­tion for SimEx-Iwerks. “Based on the suc­cess of the orig­i­nal Sponge­Bob 4-D Expe­ri­ence and most recently, Dora and Diego 4-D Adven­ture, we are delighted to be part­ner­ing with both Nick­elodeon and Super 78 to bring a new Sponge­Bob 4-D expe­ri­ence to the 4-D screen.”

Sponge­Bob SquarePants is an iconic and beloved prop­erty, with a global fan base,” said Ger­ald Raines, vice-president, of Nick­elodeon recre­ation busi­ness devel­op­ment. “This new expe­ri­ence, which inte­grates 3-D tech­nol­ogy and daz­zling in-theater effects, will engage fans the world over with a pos­i­tive and enter­tain­ing message.”
