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!
