“Winter’s Dolphin Tale Adventure” Opens in Clearwater, Florida

A new attraction featuring Winter, star of the popular family film “Dolphin Tale,” opens today, December 14, in Clearwater, Florida’s downtown Cleveland Street District in the Harborview Center. “Winter’s Dolphin Tale Adventure” features a behind-the-scenes exploration of the motion picture, timed to coincide with the movie’s DVD release on December 21.

Tickets are available at the attraction or at the nearby Clearwater Marine Aquarium (CMA), where travelers can meet Winter in the flesh. Admission is $9.95 for children 12 and under, $11.95 for adults and $10.95 for seniors 60 years and older. A special combination ticket that includes admission to both CMA and “Winter’s Dolphin Tale Adventure,” as well as free Jolley Trolley transportation linking the two, is available for $19.95 for children 12 and under, $27.95 for adults and $23.95 for seniors.

The attraction will include re-built scenes, movie images and actual movie props donated by Alcon Entertainment, as well as two mini-theaters, a children’s play area, the true story of Winter and an expanded shop.

“Dolphin Tale” is the true story of Winter, a dolphin with a tail injured so badly by a crab trap that workers at the CMA had to amputate it after rescuing the dolphin from a nearby beach. After a slow rehabilitation, the dolphin became the star attraction at the CMA, boosting attendance and contributing to the aquarium’s efforts to restore and preserve marine life through education, research and rescue.
