The featured film shown in the Planetarium is: "The Ultimate Encounter ". It's a 20-minute film presenting skyviewing of the past, present and future.Planning Key West trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.
The Nature Theater is our main attraction. You will be greeted by three HUGE screens, each showing a different aspect of our presentation. The underwater footage is absolutely breathtaking! (A big thanks to Miami attorney Pat Ford, who donated the underwater footage!).
In our Jungle Walk you'll find REAL live exotic birds and animatronic creatures to add more life to the "jungle" such as a crocodile, a manatee and a bobcat. You can also view the stuffed skin of a 22.5 foot anaconda that ate a woman down in Brazil years ago!
The Key Enconter is FREE to the public, and is open six days a week, Sunday through Friday!
