Antarctica was once a land of giants where colossal creatures roamed the forests and swamps. But, millions of years ago, something happened that caused this strange world to disappear. Join intrepid Antarctic scientists on a quest to understand the ice continent’s profound transformation – and what clues it might hold for our own future.

From the Permian to the Jurassic, discover the surreal world of bug-eyed giants and egg-laying mammals – where survival means enduring the sunless, six-month polar winter surrounded by meat-eaters with night vision. See this fantastical world brought to life on our gigantic Digital Dome screen!

This feature is especially good for guests aged 10 years old and up.

The Dome illuminates our world with stunning clarity and brilliance on its gigantic 40-foot screen. Adventurers of all ages can hike across majestic parks, climb to the top of a skyscraper, embark on an oceanic safari, and travel the cosmos without leaving their seats.
