Run time: 25 minutes

Venture through the jungles of Cambodia to the first metropolis of its kind, Angkor, and uncover the mystery that has puzzled scientists for 150 years — who built this magnificent city and why was it left for ruin?

Founded in the 9th century, Angkor sprawled across an area the size of New York’s five boroughs and rivaled Egypt’s pyramids in scale and ambition. Throughout the film, guests will follow Angkor’s transformative journey, from the highs of achieving the status of the wealthiest empire and largest trading system in Southeast Asia, to the lows of resisting invading armies and devastating climate shifts.

As archeologists and other scientists unravel the collapse of the Khmer empire and the resulting abandonment of the city of Angkor, audiences will discover cutting-edge technology and carbon dating techniques that finally bring to light the hidden truths of what happened to this forgotten empire.

Angkor: The Lost Empire of Cambodia is a visually stunning adventure that will leave guests with the hope that by uncovering the world’s hidden heritage, we will find clues to humankind’s collective resilience, creativity and brilliance that can provide lessons for future generations.
