Dragons, Vikings, and FUN!

If you have kids you’ve probably seen the DreamWorks animated movie How to Train Your Dragon.  If you have kids like mine you’ve probably seen it more than a handful of times!

DreamWorks has teamed up with the makers of Walking With Dinosaurs to bring this epic adventure to life in How to Train Your Dragon a Live Spectacular


With 23 flying, fire-shooting, smoke-breathing dragons and Vikings galore this is one live show you won’t want to miss!  The dragons have been brought to life and range from 20 feet tall, as long as 50 feet long and weigh up to 2.6 tons!  This is as close as you’ll get to meeting a real dragon!

Along with the dragons, you’ll follow Hiccup on his adventures as he finds the nightfury, Toothless, and discovers that there is more to the dragons than meets the eyes.
