$12 for a 40 minute presentation of still photos made to appear in motion. Buy a book and forget this.

The show was very informative regarding how Auroras are created. Also, the gentleman who took all the films was very passionate and talented. The film is approximately 10 years old. The pictures are beautiful and worthwhile to see. We paid $20.00 per person. I must repeat that this is the work of a man who seemed passionate about auroras. The... More

At first, we thought it would be a great informative way to see the Aurora Borealis, since we were not there in the winter to see the actual events, but the music is so soothing, it puts you right to sleep and there is no talking after the first few minutes. Although the pictures are beautiful, I can find a... More

This show was recommended by our tour guide. It was interesting to learn about how this phenomenon happens and enjoyed the first 15 minutes of beautiful pictures. However, it is too long and repetitive. Also expensive at $13.

The movie is about 45 minutes long, starting with information about the Northern Lights, this was probably the most informative part. The rest of the show was thousands of pictures set to music. The pictures were stunning, and I did appreciate the time and lengths the photographer has put into capturing these moments, however I did notice that my mind... More

This mainly slide show has a number of nice photographs of the colored lights from the Aurora Borealis wafting across the sky. We learned a bit about the interesting phenomenon of Alaska's northern lights. The actual experience of seeing the lights is usually in the cooler months, more likely when it's cold and darker than it gets when we were... More

This was reccommended to us by our tour guides. It was an hour long. I thought it would be good to see because you cant see the lights in the summer. It was just pictures set to elevator music. My 10 year old about died. If you are wanting to get off your feet for an hour, maybe?? Not worth... More

This is literally a PowerPoint of still images of the Aurora set to some music. Maybe it would've been calm and relaxing if we had paid a few bucks each, but I don't know where these people get off charging close to $30 for two people for a half hour slideshow. I expected to be educated, entertained, informed. Instead, I... More

My husband and I caught the 5 pm show.I have lived in Alaska for 30 years and have not seen the aurora with so much beauty. The colors are exquisite. It was 45 minutes long with accompanying violins. A presentation of the actual scientific piece of the aurora would be nice. Out in the lobby you can purchase the DVD... More

Yes, it was beautiful to spend time seeing all the colors of the Aurora, but after 10 minutes, we were bored. Listening to the soothing music, watching the changing lights, just made you want to take a nap. Kids would definitely be restless.
