Everyone knows of the sudden death of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago. But did you know that numerous species of dinosaurs lived…and disappeared…long before the cataclysmic disaster at the end of the Cretaceous period? Travel back millions of years in the VLM’s Abbitt Planetarium to solve four famous cases from the age of the dinosaurs. Visit dinosaur graveyards, study their bones, and reconstruct how these creatures lived and died. Never before have so many types of dinosaurs come to life in full-dome immersive reality. Discover the lives of multiple species of dinosaurs, from the Coelophysis of 205 million years ago to the Allosaurus and Diplodocus of the mid-Jurassic period. See the feathered Sinornithosaurus of China and the T. rex and Triceratops that thrived until the final extinction of all dinosaurs. A companion program to DINOSAURS!
