Travel back in time through the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous geological periods in search of the ancestors of modern-day birds, the feathered dinosaurs.

Join a father and his teenage daughter Lucy, who share a fascination for all things that fly, as they travel back in time navigating from continent to continent, exploring an Earth teeming with dinosaurs in search for clues on the origins of flight.

Racing against time, they paraglide through ancient skies with Quetzalcoatlus, flee from raptors and traverse deserts with Argentinosaurus. They walk through rain forests, climb ice cliffs, sail over primordial seas and parachute 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.
