Filming was completed in Wilmington more than a year ago, but after numerous release delays by the studio, Piranha 3DD opened in limited theaters and on various video on demand platforms on June 1.

Wilmington’s Jungle Rapids Family Fun Park doubled as the fictional ‘Big Wet Water Park’ that is attacked by some very angry fish in the movie.

  1. There really isn’t any reason to own this movie on disk. I watched 3DD when it first hit pay per view a few months ago. I remember ordering it online before I left my office at DISH and that it was ready to watch in 3D by the time I got home to my Hopper DVR. Last time I checked it’s still available too. As much fun as 3DD was, it just wasn’t as good as the first film. I would save the money and stream/rent Piranha 3dd before buying it on disk.
