In the return of the Investigating Dinosaurs exhibit, young visitors can become Junior Paleontologists and explore how we know what we know about dinosaurs. How do we know what dinosaurs looked like, how they walked or where they lived? Within five interactive stations, children will have the opportunity to uncover a dinosaur fossil, puzzle together a dinosaur skeleton, compare your footprints to a dinosaur print, create a landscape for dinosaurs to live in and make a dinosaur rubbing. This engaging exhibit provides many ways for children to use critical thinking skills such as analyzing evidence and logical reasoning, as well as open-ended imaginative play.

* Inspired by James Cameron's AVATAR, TORUK - The First Flight transports you to the world of Pandora in a visually stunning live setting. Experience a storytelling odyssey through a new world of imagination, discovery, and possibility.
* Narrated by a "Na'vi Storyteller" and populated by unforgettable characters, TORUK - The First Flight is a mythical tale set thousands of years before the events depicted in the film AVATAR, and before any humans ever set foot on Pandora.
* Written and Directed by Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon, TORUK - The First Flight is very different from other Cirque du Soleil shows, with a main focus on the story being told and the use of projections, large scale puppets, and indoor kites.
* 39 artists in the cast - 1 actor, 1 singer, 1 percussionist, 1 kite specialist, 6 puppeteers, and 29 acrobats.
* 40 video projectors used to recreate Pandora.
* 16 puppets represent the creatures of Pandora: six Viperwolves, three Direhorses, three Austrapedes, one Turtapede, two swarms of Woodsprites, and one Toruk. While the Viperwolves and Direhorses are directly inspired by the movie AVATAR, the Austrapedes and the Turtapede were created from scratch.
