The usage of sharks as characters for the theme park is enticing for people to experience “Sharknado Alive!” in person. Taken from the interview with Ferrante himself, “People view the idea of sharks differently. For example, while shark attacks appear to be terrifying for some, others might think the opposite, they think of it as something hilarious instead”.

3. JAWSOME 3D Experience

One of the appeals of “Sharknado Alive!” is the use of 3D technology that is rarely used in other theme parks, including using 3D glasses in order to pass through the dizzy images of sharks in a tunnel, this creates realistic impressions that a real shark is attacking us in the tunnel!

Another example is the use of lightings and lasers that generates an effect as if we are walking through a pool filled with real life sharks. Sharknado Alive! promises a real life experience as though you are at the set of filming, complete with presence of the green screen that is mainly used in the movies.

4. Other Interesting Offers
