Volcanoes seem dangerous and destructive. But in fact, for billions of years, volcanoes have helped create the world we know. From the continents to the air we breathe and even life itself, all have their origins related to volcanoes. With over 500 active volcanoes, the Earth is bursting at the seams with these forces of mass construction. The story of volcanoes is the story of the planet's creation and the story of us.

In the OMNIMAX Show "Volcanoes: The Fires of Creation", explorer Carsten Peter will accompany you to dodge boulders at the edge of an active volcano in Indonesia, descend to a lava lake in Vanuatu and visit incredible acid ponds, geysers and mineral deposit fields in Ethiopia. You will also travel to the archaeological ghost town of Pompeii and witness the devastating effects of the recent Kilauea eruption in Hawaii.

You will not only experience all the dangerous situations imaginable during volcano eruption in the safest way but also see how the whole process helps to create extraordinary ecosystems and habitats. "Volcanoes: The Fires of Creation" is a tale of science, culture and thrilling adventure. Come to discover the molten worlds!
