Sea Monsters 3D - A Prehistoric Adventure

From National Geographic.

Eighty million years ago, the American Midwest lay under a great inland sea where colossal creatures ruled the waves. From giraffe-necked Styxosaurus and sea birds with teeth to the T-Rex of the ocean — the 40-foot super-predator Tylosaurus — these wondrous beasts defy imagination. In a remarkable journey, National Geographic immerses audiences in this unexplored world of the “other dinosaurs,” delivering the fascinating science behind what we know and a vision of history’s grandest ocean creatures brought to life in spectacular 3D.

Running Time: 20 mins | Daily: 11am and 3pm. Please see notice above for any session changes.

Wonders of the Arctic 3D

Set in the frozen wilderness at the top of the world, Wonders of the Arctic tells the story of survival in one of the most unforgiving environments on Earth, dominated by a single element: ice. 

Through compelling stories told by scientists and Inuit leaders, award-winning filmmaker David Lickley takes audiences on a journey across one of the most beautiful and frigid places on earth, exploring how humans and animals have adapted and thrived for thousands of years in the vast ice wilderness of the Arctic.
