Oceanarium Reimagined!
Marine Mammal Amphitheater and Show

Since 1991, Shedd’s marine mammal presentations have delighted guests of all ages by teaching important educational messages about training and animal care as well as viewing natural behaviors of our Pacific white-sided dolphins. Just as the rest of the Oceanarium underwent renovation, so did the amphitheater…in a big way, providing Shedd the opportunity to utilize state-of-the-art technology to make our shows even better than before.

Debuting late summer 2009, the new marine mammal presentation, Fantasea powered by ComEd, will be a multi-species show unlike any other. The show will use 16 intelligent computer-controlled lights, high definition cameras to project 1080I high-definition images reaching 110 feet across by 20 feet high and a sound system with capabilities to carry multiple types of sound from voice, rock music, sound effects and symphony plus much more.
