Jurassic World arena experience roars into North Texas for summer dino fun
The Jurassic World franchise, despite putting out mediocre movies, will continue its expanding entertainment options with the Jurassic World Live Tour, coming to Dallas' American Airlines Center for six performances, August 11-13.
The North American tour of Jurassic World Live starts May 19 in Vancouver, British Columbia, visiting 27 cities through the end of November. In addition to North Texas, the tour will also stop in Houston, August 4-6, and in Austin, August 18-20.
The arena tour experience takes inspiration from both the Jurassic World series and the Netflix animated series Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous , featuring dinosaurs like Velociraptor Blue, a Tyrannosaurus rex, and even Camp Cretaceous' Bumpy, the friendly and food-motivated dinosaur.
In all, the production features more than 24 film-accurate, life-sized dinosaurs operated by animatronics and performers. This production is not to be confused with Jurassic World: The Exhibition, which came to Grandscape in The Colony in 2021.
The production, featuring composer Michael Giacchino's score, combines projection and practical scenery to transform arenas into the dense jungles of Isla Nublar, where real Gyrospheres roll through the valley and scientists work to unravel a corrupt plan and save a new dinosaur from a terrible fate.
The tour also features a special pre-show experience one hour before showtime, where audience members can see the Jurassic World dinosaurs and vehicles up close and take photos with Triceratops, Stegosaurus, Baby Bumpy, and the Jurassic World Jeep and Gyrosphere. The pre-show experience is included with all ticket purchases.
Fans can sign up to become a Jurassic World Live Tour Preferred Guest at JurassicWorldLiveTour.com to get exclusive access to advance pre-sale code to purchase tickets early. The pre-sale is live as of May 16, with tickets going on-sale to the general public on Tuesday, May 23.
