There's being immersed in film and now there's being submerged.

Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi is introducing a first-of-its kind attraction to the UAE - a 5D cinema theatre that fills up with water.

Announced during the Arabian Travel Market in Dubai, the waterpark's Cinesplash will use an array of special effects to tell the story of the “Legend of the Lost Pearl”, the award-winning story inspired by the UAE’s pearl diving past.

Audiences will follow Dana quest through the sands of Abu Dhabi to recover her village’s beacon of prosperity, the Mother Pearl.

The 3D film will be accompanied with stimulating effects including spraying water, water explosions, rain, waterfalls, neck blasts, water guns, and fountains.

RGB lighted bubbles in the theatre walls and ceiling will be accompanied by ground fog, leg ticklers, wind effects, and 3 degrees of motion on vibrating seats.

To cap it off, Cinesplash will fill up with 45-50 centimetres of water.
