The ability to fly is one of the greatest wonders in the natural world. Millions of creatures soar above our heads today, using a fabulous variety of techniques to defy gravity. But how did animals make the incredible transition from land to air?

Uncover the 300-million-year story of flight in this short, feature film! uses the Conquest of the Skies captures the beauty and excitement of the whole world of flying creatures: from ancient pterosaurs to night-flying bats, and from acrobatic dragonflies to the hummingbirds which beat their wings more than 80 times a second. Audiences will enter this amazing world of animal aviators, and leave the theater both stunned by the spectacle and thrilled by the story of how animals rose up and conquered the skies.

Behind the Name

The Horizon Ranch Flint Hills Immersive Experience Theater is named in recognition of Marty Vanier and Bob Krause. Their love of the tallgrass prairie and a deep appreciation for its role in shaping Kansas values and underpinning a significant sector of our agricultural history led them to want to encourage others to care as well. The couple felt a responsibility to be good stewards of the land and pass that appreciation of the Flint Hills onto future generations.
