‘Dinosaurs at Dusk’, one of the most action-packed full dome animations available, is a story of a teenage girl Lucy and her father, who share a fascination for all things that fly. Travel by a variety of off-road vehicles, Lucy and her father fly through the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous across an ever-changing planet teeming with Pterosaurs and other ancestors of modern-day birds: the feathered dinosaurs. Racing against time, they paraglide through ancient skies with Quetzalcoatlus, flee from raptors, ride behind Argeninosaurus, and traverse into a huge sinkhole in their search for the first flying birds. When time runs out they even experience first-hand the cataclysmic ‘final day’ of the dinosaurs.
"Dinosaurs at Dusk" has to be the most kinetic planetarium show ever produced. This program will make you want to flee outside at a full sprint and scale a cliff just so that you can slap on a wing suit and base jump off it. About 45 minutes in length, quite long by planetarium show standards, however, since this show whips the audience along so swiftly, the time period is scarcely noticeable. Our two protagonists soar through wide open canyons; sail over tumultuous oceans; hike through tropical rain forests, climb large ice cliffs, parachute into vast sink holes; all the while chasing, and sometimes running away from, all manner of Dinosaurs. The combination of all that activity with those gorgeous full dome vistas make this the single most cheerfully beautiful show we've ever offered.
In this fast-paced show from Mirage3D, there is plenty of visual variety to keep the interest of younger children, while older children and adults enjoy the explanations and facts that are given about the animals and the environment they inhabit. Join Lucy and her father in this whirlwind time-travel adventure flight through history!
