"Polar Obsession" and "Planet Earth: Ice Worlds 4D"

Guests now have two new ways to explore the Arctic and Antarctic worlds of penguins, polar bears, narwhales, and more, but don’t worry, you can leave the winter coat at home.

In fact, you don’t even have to leave South Texas. A newly-arrived National Geographic photo exhibition, “Polar Obsession” and 4D film “Planet Earth: Ice Worlds 4D” will introduce guests to the frigid and frozen environments around the world – and best of all, both experiences are included with admission.
