Narrated by Academy Award® winner, Robert Redford, National Parks Adventure is an immersive giant-screen experience that takes audiences on the ultimate off-trail adventure into the pristine wilderness of America’s great outdoors. Spectacularly wild and iconic places like Yosemite, Yellowstone, the Everglades, Redwood, Canyonlands and more are illuminated as never before with IMAX® 3D camera imagery. Audiences will drop into the adventure with world-class mountaineer Conrad Anker, his son Max Lowe, and friend Rachel Pohl as they mountain bike ride, ice climb, and river raft their way through the nation’s mountains and canyons, then travel back in time to America’s most famous camping trip where President Theodore Roosevelt and renowned conservationist John Muir imagined a vast National Parks system that would preserve these national treasures forever. Released to coincide with the 100th Anniversary of the U.S. National Parks, National Parks Adventure reveals a tapestry of natural wonders that will inspire the adventurer in us all.
