Expect to see Blue the Raptor, Triceratops, Pteranodons and the mighty T. rex taking centre stage during the Canadian premiere event. Jurassic World Live features over 24 film-accurate, life-sized, animatronic, and performer-operated dinosaurs, with each dinosaur built with the latest technology and Hollywood studio quality.
These dinosaurs are accompanied by real Gyrospheres, digital projection, special effects, and a continuous stream of impressive stunts.
Brand new characters and villains have been created for this live show by Feld Entertainment, an extension of the universe that evolved from the original Michael Crichton novels of John Hammond’s dream of a dinosaur theme park on a remote island off the coast of Costa Rica.
The compelling storyline provides a nod to fans and stays true to the series; Jurassic World Live Tour takes place in Isla Nubar between the cinematic events of Jurassic World, when Hammond’s dream is finally realized but short-lived after the Indominus Rex escapes, and the volcanic destruction of the island in Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom.
With the park closed, a team of scientists is tasked with uncovering InGen’s corrupt plan of exploiting the remaining dinosaurs, specifically rescuing an all-new dinosaur named Jeanie.
You’ll want to arrive early to enjoy a special Pre-show Experience included with all ticket purchases. One hour before showtime, guests can get up close and personal with their favourite Jurassic World dinosaurs and vehicles. There will also be photo ops with Triceratops, Stegosaurus, Baby Bumpy from the Netflix animated series Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, and the Jurassic World Jeep and Gyrosphere.
Jurassic World Live Tour was set to come to Vancouver in 2020, but the shows were cancelled due to the pandemic.
This is the company’s largest and most technically complex production to date. Other Feld Entertainment productions include Monster Jam, Monster Energy Supercross, Disney On Ice, Disney Live!, Marvel Universe LIVE!, Sesame Street Live!, and Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey.
You can also sign up to be a Jurassic World Live Tour Preferred Guest at JurassicWorldLiveTour.com to get exclusive access to an advance pre-sale code to purchase your seats early before tickets go on sale to the general public.
