The South Rim is the place to make your entry into the iconic Grand Canyon National Park. We are uniquely situated one mile south of the South Rim Entrance Gate in the small gateway Town of Tusayan. With so many amenities and extras, make us your group or tour’s first stop before heading into the National Park.
IMAX® with Laser
Only 5 percent of the visitors to Grand Canyon explore beyond the rim of this great Natural World Wonder, most just stand on the edge and look out. The Grand Canyon Rivers of Time Movie in IMAX with Laser will immerse you into an unforgetable adventure you will never forget. IMAX with Laser technology will deliver crystal clear images, increased resolution, deeper contrast, as well as the most distinct, exotic colors ever available on-screen. In only 35-minutes, discover 4,000 years of human history and enhance your visit to Grand Canyon.
Be sure to experience Grand Canyon’s most unique shopping adventure. There is an abundance of branded merchandise along with books on the Grand Canyon. The Visitor Center also has an ATM and a National Park Service Pay Station that enables you to pre-purchase your Park entrance tickets and avoid waiting in line at the Park Entry Station. Little wonder many visitors spend almost as much time at the Visitor Center as they do looking over the rim of the Canyon.
Combine the new Grand Canyon Rivers of Time Movie with a delicious meal from our Explorer’s Cafe (dine in or boxed lunch to go). Asian Rice Bowls, fresh Deli Sandwiches, Pizza Hut® Personal Pan Pizzas, Soups and Salads are a few of the choices available. With a large selection of food and beverage choices, the Explorer’s Café is a pleasant dining experience for every hungry guest.
