“Interesting film on Yellowstone”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

A nice relaxing way to spend an evening after touring Yellowstone. Tickets go on sale 10 minutes before the hour. So you'll probably spend some time in the gift shop.

“Yellowstone IMAX Theatre”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

Very convenient location just outside the West entrance to Yellowstone National Park. Free parking and lots of restaurant options within walking distance. Food options inside also.

NOTE: Don't miss out on the 50 cent mini-ice cream cones.

Great gift shop - we did all of our souvenir shopping here - and they will ship anywhere in the world.

If you have never been to an IMAX - you are in for a treat. The screen is 52' high x 72' wide. Strap yourself in if you have vertigo - the shots done by helicopter are like you are in the helicopter with your feet dangling over the edge...very spectacular.

We are fortunate enough to have one in our hometown and is a real treat to watch first run and specialty shows like Rolling Stones in concert. Like being in the front row.

There were other shows running also (Alaska) but the Yellowstone show was every 2 hours starting at noon. Some retail stores/hotels in West Yellowstone have discount coupons available for this attraction (more to spend on ice cream).

“A Rip Off”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

I have not attended an IMax for several years so maybe this is standard but for the high price of admission and then to only see a thirty minute film on Yellowstone seemed like a tourist trap to me. I will be wiser IF I ever go to another, which is highly doubtful. Not to mention the earsplitting sound system which gave each of us a headache by the end. And, the fact that the business was staffed with unruly giggling teenagers who were grabbing each other and wrestling as customers approached the entrance. This doesn't speak well for any business. I hope the IMax management reads Trip Advisor and sees how their business is run behind their backs. There was no one to complain to expect a kid.
