THE ULTIMATE WAVE TAHITI ‘SPLASHES’ INTO GREAT LAKES SCIENCE CENTER’S SIX-STORY OMNIMAX® THEATER THANKSGIVING WEEKEND
October 28th, 2011
CLEVELAND (October 28, 2011) – Experience the majesty of ocean waves among the tropical backdrop of Tahiti in the new OMNIMAX film, The Ultimate Wave Tahiti, premiering Friday, November 25 at Great Lakes Science Center.
The Ultimate Wave Tahiti follows 11-time world champion surfer Kelly Slater and Tahitian surfer Raimana Van Bastolaer as they explore the nature of waves and hunt for the ultimate wave-riding experience at the famed Pacific surf site of Teahupo’o, Tahiti. From astounding surfing action to the chaos of ocean storms, the film leads audiences on a quest to understand the science behind of this planet’s most intriguing and dramatic phenomena.
“An ocean wave is an energy wave at human scale, something we can see, touch, swim through and ride upon,” says Linda Abraham-Silver, president and CEO of Great Lakes Science Center. “The Ultimate Wave Tahiti not only showcases the magic of waves, it conveys important science messages, including where waves come from, why they are critical to the ecosystem and how many cultures depend on this critical natural force.”
In partnership with Pacific Holidays and The Plain Dealer, Great Lakes Science Center encourages visitors to enter the “Ultimate Sweepstakes” for the chance to win a trip for two to Tahiti! The sweepstakes runs Jan. 9 – 31, 2012 and visitors can get details at www.GreatScience.com.
