    Great for kids elementary to early middle-school - exhibits are not designed for older teens/adults.

    After catching a movie at the Omni Theater, the exit takes you past the projector setup, so you can see how it works.

    Save your money if your going to go see the ultimate dinosaurs exhibit! The whole thing is a total of three rooms. It is poorly put together and there is only about 20 dinosaurs all together.

    You can't be more than 5 min late for a movie or they will seriously not let you in. The guy with this tiny bit of authority takes it very very serious.
