DISCOVERY DOME SHOW
THE GREAT PLANET ADVENTURES

Off-World Thrills on Every Planet

With muscles and bones made on Earth, you'll be a super star on the solar system's low-gravity worlds. Imagine zip lining on the scorched Mercury or snowmobiling when it really snows on Pluto. Bungee jumping into outer space from an asteroid is like low-g diving from the tallest cliff or rappelling into deepest canyon in the solar system. Without gravity's strong pull, you can glide over the hydrocarbon lakes of Titan, jet-pack in a geyser's spray on Triton, or even drive a monster truck along a steep lunar crater wall. The Great Planet Adventures brings you each of these incredible off-world adventures.

Includes 2 free immersive fulldome games: Monster Trucks On The Moon, where you can try to drive down Shackleton Crater without losing your load, and Mars Flyer, where you can fly a jet-assisted plane on Mars.
