LAS VEGAS – Excalibur invites visitors young and old on a whimsical journey under the sea through the hilarious thrill ride, SpongeBob SquarePants™ 4-D. The funny, action-packed adventure is based on Nickelodeon’s popular cartoon series.

The zany escapade begins with a five-minute, pre-show video introducing SpongeBob and his friends. Guests are then invited to enter the simulation theater and fill 18 motion-based seats. The nearly five-minute ride follows SpongeBob and his nemesis, Plankton, through a series of underwater adventures in Bikini Bottom. Throughout the ride, guests are treated to a wide array of 4-D special effects from water squirts and real bubbles to vibrating seats and puffs of wind.

“People of all ages love SpongeBob so this engaging 4-D production is a natural complement to the all-ages magic of Excalibur,” said Vice President of Marketing Lynn Holt.

Located on Excalibur’s Fantasy Faire level, SpongeBob SquarePants 4-D is open Monday through Friday beginning at noon and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. Riders must be at least 42-inches tall. Individual tickets are $9.95 for one ride, $11.95 for two and $12.95 for three. For more information, call (702) 597-7777 or visit www.excalibur.com.
