Comments about Smart Destinations 4-D Special FX Theater Experience at the Shedd Aquarium:

This was a very fun treat for the young and old alike. I took my 2 year old son last year, and he loves Spongebob. He would not wear the 3D glasses the entire time, and would get slightly upset by the vibrations in the seats, etc. But, overall, it was an enjoyable experience for him, and for me!
