Riverfront Park enchants viewers with awe-inspiring visual and auditory wonders inside an enormous IMAX theater housing one of the largest indoor screens in the Pacific Northwest. Standing 53-feet high and stretching 69-feet wide, the screen is slightly taller than the average human and displays crystal-clear images, which are complimented with the sounds of a booming, wrap-around surround-sound system. Happy Feet Two immerses viewers in an animated tale of heroic penguins, while Real Steel tells the futuristic, family-friendly story of boxing robots. Those wishing to catch a Christmas flick can opt to see The Polar Express, 2004’s motion-capture epic based on Chris Van Allsburg’s classic children’s book. IMAX engrosses both adults (a $10.25 value/ticket) and children (a $5.75 value/ticket) of all ages in a unique cinematic experience that’s as memorable as watching home movies of a newlywed couple’s first cactus.
Sprawling across 100 acres in the verdant, picturesque Spokane Falls, Riverfront Park beckons with awe-inspiring visual and auditory wonders. SkyRide, constructed in 2006, invites visitors to survey the land from above, swooping across the Spokane River and past city hall, where they can wave to their favorite comptroller. Back on the ground, the historic Looff Carousel, built in 1909, whirls riders around on 54 horses, two Chinese-dragon chairs, one giraffe, and one tiger, and a tour train chugs through the park on a 30-minute narrated jaunt. Among other attractions, such as the Sculpture Walk and pony rides, Riverfront Park houses one of the largest indoor screens in the Pacific Northwest. Standing 53 feet high and stretching 69 feet wide, the screen is slightly taller than the average human and displays crystal-clear two-dimensional images, which are complemented by the sounds of a booming, wraparound surround-sound system.
