The mission given to guests visiting the Oceanographic Museum is to rescue a team that lost contact at a depth of 13,000 meters in the deep sea. Guests will embark on a submersible, and be drawn into the unexplored depths of the ocean through a fusion of video, audio, and action seats.

The key to this immersive experience lies in a total of 81 high-quality speakers, motion ride seats that provide special effects like wind and jolts, and high-definition LED screens installed in the front (8m wide x 3.5m high) and on the ceiling (4.7m wide x 4.3m high).

Guests can experience the realism and immersive feeling that makes one's skin crawl, with three-dimensional acoustics that envelop the entire hall, precise motion integrated with the visuals and audio, and a deep sea scene that extends overhead, drawing them into the darkness of the deep sea.
