Grand Canyon IMAX Theater

The Basics

The film screened within this IMAX theater gives viewers the sensation of traveling through the 277 miles (446 kilometers) of the Grand Canyon, soaring over the canyon rim, white water rafting down the Colorado River, and going back in time to uncover the history of this natural wonder.

Visitors can upgrade their IMAX experience to include a light meal and drink to enjoy during the screening. You can also grab a bite to eat after the movie at the Explorer’s Cafe, do some shopping at the Official National Geographic Store, or learn about the Inner Canyon from visitor center staff.

Really enjoyed this tour
We had John as our tour guide and myself and my friend found him very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. His humour was really enjoyable also. We liked the fact this tour was designed for small numbers as it made us feel heard and also we weren't struggling to hear what was being said.

Disappointed the hummer was cancelled. But the rim was fantastic. Need longer stops for meals. They were very rushed. Had to eat on the bus and it stunk to high heaven. Need water also provided in my opinion.

Small-Group Grand Canyon South Rim Deluxe Tour from Las Vegas
It's a long drive, but well worth the trip. If you have limited time to see the canyon, this is a great choice. Leave the driving through the desert to these experienced drivers. Included breakfast & lunch (nothing fancy but very adequate) stops at Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, nice IMAX film at the visitors center, and stops at 3 different viewing spots at the canyon. Our guide was very informative and kept everyone on schedule to maximize our time at each stop. Even showed a movie in the Mercedes Sprinter Van on the drive back to Vegas. All in all, a long, but fantastic day.

Grand Canyon South Rim Bus Tour with Optional Upgrades
I booked this tour before our visit to Las Vegas. The Grayline bus was big which was great for the long drive. Our bus driver Ozzy was AWESOME! Very funny and did a great job of giving us history as we traveled to the Grand Canyon. The Buck Wild Hummer Tour was great, very timely. Our tour guide Trey was very patient, took pictures of our group and was a wealth of information about the canyon. Even the box lunch was good! I would recommend this tour as it is a great way to see more of the Grand Canyon.

Amazing but couple things to keep in mind

Grand Canyon South Rim Bus Tour with Optional Upgrades
It was a long trip to the Canyon but we did not feel bored as the tour guide kept us entertained- Grand Canyon was amazing. They do let you go on our own so there is a slight chance of getting lost , which we did. If you are not good with directions or have a tendency to get lost I would advise keeping up with the group or getting good at asking people where to go. Keep in mind that they may not know either. Listen to directions and keep your eyes and ears open. Not one of those tours where you don't have to think about anything and the guide does all the work for you and you just follow them.

When to Get There

The Grand Canyon IMAX film is shown every hour on the half-hour daily throughout the year (with shorter hours in winter). Plan to see the movie before you visit the Grand Canyon to get some context, and plan to book your tickets ahead of time, as the line can get long, especially during the summer.
