Jurassic World Live Tour in 2023
The Jurassic World Live Tour is an exciting production that brings the Jurassic World movies to life in a unique new way. The show features life-sized dinosaurs, detailed sets, brand-new characters and action-packed sequences. It also has a story.
In the show, audiences visit Isla Nublar where a team of scientists works together to save the life of a dinosaur name Jeanie. It’s an original story that fits between the Jurassic World and Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom movies. Other dinosaurs in the production include Blue the Raptor, a Triceratops, Pteranodons and, of course, a Tyrannosaurus Rex.
The touring show is a family-friendly experience perfect for all ages. There are all sorts of special effects, projections, live actors and awesome technology to admire. Not only do you get to see massive dinosaurs take the stage, but the Jurassic World Jeep and Gyrosphere vehicles are also in the show! Inside the dinosaurs are real people!
The performance portion of the event runs for just under 2 hours including a 15 to 20 minute intermission. However, there’s also a preshow experience before every performance! The preshow is your chance to get closer to the dinosaurs and cool vehicles. It’s a wonderful opportunity to get some fun photos and see some of the show’s props up close.
