Jaw-dropper: Notice that green fence around the building formerly occupied by Domino’s Pizza, 2424 Seawall Blvd., next to Chick-fil-A on the island? Crews will soon demolish the building to make way for a Landry’s Inc. amusement attraction called Shark Attack The Mysterious Underworld 5D. There’ll be two attractions in the building, reports Keith Beitler, senior vice president and chief operating officer of Specialty Restaurants Division, Kemah Boardwalk and International Franchising for Houston-based Landry’s.
The most striking is a scene in which visitors watch as a massive, angry shark attempts to break through what appears to be aquarium glass. The floor moves and water splashes as the shark thrashes and gets more agitated. Matrix Technology is the designer and creator of the attraction meant to make visitors feel very much a part of the frightening scene.
