Going Green Has Never Been More Fun!

To celebrate Earth Day, we're showing Antarctica in The Dome at noon, 1 p.m., 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. This is a great chance to experience a rarely seen part of our Earth on our quarter-acre screen! Dome shows are included with admission during the Earth Day Celebration, but reservations are required. Reservations can be made at Guest Services on the day of the event. Each showing is limited to 250 guests.
