In this fast-paced fulldome show from Mirage3D, we follow the adventures of a father and his teenage daughter Lucy, who share a fascination for all things that fly. They travel back in time, navigating from continent to continent, exploring an Earth teeming with pterosaurs and the ancestors of modern-day birds — the feathered dinosaurs.
Their travels take them through the Triassic, Jurassic, and the Cretaceous geologic periods. They soar the ancient skies withQuetzalcoatlus, escape from raptors, and race across the deserts behind Argentinosaurus. They hike through rain forests, scale ice cliffs, sail over primordial oceans, and parachute into a vast sinkhole in their search for the first flying animals. When time runs out, they experience first-hand the cataclysmic "last day" of the dinosaurs.
Science content includes topics such as continental drift, asteroids and impacts, extinctions and the convergent development of flight among species.
