What you can expect
Dive into a virtual ocean where high tech meets the deep sea. National Geographic Encounter is a new, interactive entertainment attraction in Times Square that journeys through the Pacific Ocean over one incredible night, where guests see, hear and feel what it’s like to be under the sea and encounter its greatest wonders.
You’ll hear breathtaking stories from National Geographic photographers and explorers, take on gaming challenges, and become a true champion for our oceans every day.
Only in New York City can visitors escape the jaws of a 50-foot humpback whale, laugh through a kelp forest maze, play with mischievous sea lions, and encounter a luminous coral reef, sharks, dolphins, and a battle between vicious squid – all without getting wet.
