Great movie - okay food.

Although the movie was fantastic the meal we paid for was not what we expected. The website we bought the tickets still had rice bowls as an option but when we got there to view the movie at 2:30pm they told us due to covid they can't offer that item. Although I understand the only other real option was pizza BUT they closed at 3pm which was passed the time we would get out of the movie. The young man taking tickets did apologize and took our order for 2 veggie pizzas and made it right once we got out. Our reserved pizza was given to a couple just before us so they did make us fresh ones even though they had closed. That was a plus. So just beware that things change at the site but may not be updated on the website. Thus the 4 star rating instead of 5.

Good Overview of the grand Canyon Movie

Overall, worth your time and money. The check in process, getting your tickets, and knowing where to go a little sketchy. Had to ask three different people to get the proper info to get our tickets and know where to go. The movie itself was a good one, a mix of flying through the Canyon on screen and some history. Great views of the Canyon and back story about the Canyon. I would recommend going to see it.

Magnificent! A wonderful follow-up, having spent a day walking various parts of the south rim on Saturday and then thoroughly enjoying the view from the helicopter and the dialogue with our pilot, Nate, on Sunday.

A magical experience seeing the Grand Canyon's history in IMAX! The story of Powell's expedition and the hardship he and his team endured made the experience even more exhilarating. I would highly recommend this to all who intend spending time at the Grand Canyon.
