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.

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.
